New tool provides greater accuracy for medical biosensors
A team of researchers developed a new method using nanopores — a nanometer-sized hole — to help scientists advance their discoveries in neuroscience and other medical applications.
Mizzou team develops system that detects cancerous mutations in a single molecule
A Mizzou research team has developed a two-part system that accurately detects cancerous mutations in a single molecule of genetic material (DNA). But wait, there’s more. Biomedical and Biological Engineering Professor Li-Qun “Andrew” Gu and his collaborators also believe his nanopore machine could have the ability to read digital data stored on DNA. The team…
Engineering faculty recognized for patents that take research to market
When Mizzou Engineering’s top faculty aren’t teaching the next generation of engineers, they’re busy collaborating with medical, plant science and other researchers across campus to make life better for the rest of us.
