Fungal infections are a major challenge to human health that is heightened by pathogen resistance to current therapeutic agents. Previously, we were inspired by host-defense peptides to develop nylon-3 polymers (poly-β-peptides) that are toxic toward the fungal pathogen Candida albicans...

Candida glabrata (C. glabrata) forms part of the normal human gut microbiota but can cause life-threatening invasive infections in immune-compromised individuals. C. glabrata displays high resistance to common azole antifungals, which necessitates new treatments. In this investigation, we identified five...

The assembly of active and self-propelled particles is an emerging strategy to create dynamic materials otherwise impossible. However, control of the complex particle interactions remains challenging. Here, we show that various dynamic interactions of active patchy particles can be orchestrated...


Protein Expression Systems

The development of genetic engineering and cloning has opened many possibilities of expression and isolation of heterologous proteins for research purposes. Considerable advances in technology have enabled expression and isolation of recombinant proteins in large scale.

Introduction to Yeast Media

Technical Article on yeast media. Yeasts are eukaryotic microorganisms whose genomes have been comprehensively studied and some have been sequenced.


Yeast Growth Protocols

Yeasts are considered model systems for eukaryotic studies as they exhibit fast growth and have dispersed cells. Yeast cultures can be grown, maintained, and stored in liquid media or on agar plates using techniques similar to those for bacterial cultures.

Our team of scientists has experience in all areas of research including Life Science, Material Science, Chemical Synthesis, Chromatography, Analytical and many others.
