Mechanical Engineering Seminar TODAY! - Miniaturizing DNA Analysis from Fundamentals to Forensics

When: Friday, November 30, 2012 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM
Where: Engineering : DeWALT Seminar Room : 2164 Martin Hall
Event Type(s): Seminar

"Miniaturizing DNA Analysis from Fundamentals to Forensics"
Presented by: Dr. Elizabeth A. Strychalski (National Institute of Standards and Technology)

Abstract: Dr. Strychalski will discuss two methods of miniature-scale DNA analysis. The first is a nanofluidic staircase that measures DNA and controls its transport. The second is a microfluidic method and platform for rapid and automated DNA extraction from complex matrices.

Bio: Dr. Elizabeth Strychalski received her Ph.D. in physics from Cornell University in 2009. She is a postdoctoral researcher under the National Research Council Research Associateship Program at the National Institute of Standards and Technology and also a staff scientist.
