Characterization of Full Set Material Constants and Their Temperature Dependence for Piezoelectric Materials Using Resonant Ultrasound Spectroscopy Liguo Tang1, Wenwu Cao2 1Key Laboratory of Underwater Acoustic Communication and Marine Information Technology, Xiamen University, 2Department of Mathematics and Material Research Institute, The Pennsylvania State University This protocol describes the procedure of measuring the temperature dependence of the full set material constants of piezoelectric materials using resonant ultrasound spectroscopy (RUS).
Protocol for Production of a Genetic Cross of the Rodent Malaria Parasites Sittiporn Pattaradilokrat1, Jian Li1,2, Xin-zhuan Su1 1National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, National Institutes of Health, 2School of Life Science, Xiamen University Genetic crosses of rodent malaria parasites are performed by feeding two genetically distinct parasites to mosquitoes. Recombinant progeny are cloned from mouse blood after allowing mosquitoes to bite infected mice. This video shows how to produce genetic crosses of Plasmodium yoelii and is applicable to other rodent malaria parasites.
