Abstract:

The DURIP was utilized for the purchase and use of three instruments. One was a plate reader for the analysis of enzyme kinetics related to propagating reactions at the interface of DNA- and Peptide-based polymeric nanoparticles and responsive materials. Another was a UV-Vis spectrometer used to generate melting curves for DNA- and PNA-based polymers and nanoparticles. The final instrument was a Carl Zeiss fluorescent microscopy used to analyze these classes of nano materials interacting with surfaces and with biological materials including cells.
