  5. A Quantitative Study of Size Segregation in Free Surface Granular Flows

    R494vk33w?file=thumbnail
    Description: Granular solids consisting of various particle sizes exhibit the tendency to de-mix, or segregate, when caused to shear by external forces such as gravity. This well-known phenomenon is of special practical interest to many industries involved in the handling and transportation of bulk solids, where segregation can lead to adverse...

  7. Peptide Biomimicry: Structure-Activity Relationships of Peptoid Analogues of Lung Surfactant Protein C

    9z903003h?file=thumbnail
    Description: The adoption of surfactant replacement therapy (SRT) for the treatment of neonatal respiratory distress syndrome (nRDS) is one of the main contributors to the dramatic decline in infant mortality rates observed in the 1980s. Despite the significant efficacy of animal-derived surfactant preparations, there are still some concerns associated with their...

  8. METABOLIC ENGINEERING OF CLOSTRIDIUM ACETOBUTYLICUM FOR ENHANCED BUTANOL PRODUCTION AND SELECTIVITY

    6d56zw76x?file=thumbnail
    Description: To increase the butanol titers and selectivity in <em>Clostridium acetobutylicum</em> we replaced the promoter of the alcohol/aldehyde dehydrogenase (<em>aad</em>) gene with the phosphotranbutyrylase (<em>ptb</em>) promoter and combined this with CoAT downregulation to minimize acetone production. This led to early production of high alcohol (butanol plus ethanol) titers and overall solvent...
