Micropunching Lithography for Generating Micro- and Submicron-patterns on Polymer Substrates Anirban Chakraborty1, Xinchuan Liu1, Cheng Luo1 1Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, University of Texas at Arlington A micropunching lithography approach is developed to generate micro- and submicron-patterns on top, sidewall and bottom surfaces of polymer substrates. It overcomes the obstacles of patterning conducting polymers and generating sidewall patterns. This method allows rapid fabrication of multiple features and is free of aggressive chemistry.
An Introduction to Worm Lab: from Culturing Worms to Mutagenesis Jyotiska Chaudhuri*1, Manish Parihar*1, Andre Pires-daSilva1 1Department of Biology, University of Texas at Arlington Screening for mutants with phenotypic defects is a straightforward method for identifying genes that function in a given biological process. In this article we describe how to culture free living worms (e.g., Pristionchus pacificus) in the laboratory and show two different mutagenesis methods, EMS and TMP/UV.
Assessing Stomatal Response to Live Bacterial Cells using Whole Leaf Imaging Reejana Chitrakar1, Maeli Melotto1 1Biology, University of Texas at Arlington We have developed a simple and reproducible protocol to access stomatal response to live bacteria. This method minimizes wounding and manipulation of the leaf as compared to the use of epidermal peels reported previously.
