Cellular and molecular investigations of the adhesion and mechanics of Listeria monocytogenes
Atomic force microscopy has been used to quantify the adherence and mechanical properties of an array of L. monocytogenes strains and their surface biopolymers. First, eight L. monocytogenes strains that represented the ...
Roles of Temperature and Ionic Strengths of Growth in Bacterial Surface Biopolymer Properties, DLVO and Specific Interactions Governing the Bioadhesion of L. monocytogenes to Silicon Nitride
The effects of the surface biopolymers' properties of
Electron Transfer Mechanisms in Electrochemically Active Biofilms
The chemical and electrochemical gradients, or collectively microscale gradients, in biofilms play a critical role in electron transfer processes between cells and a solid electron acceptor. Typically, electron transfer ...
Development and Application of Microelectrodes in Biofilms
The objective of this dissertation was to develop novel microelectrode techniques and to use microelectrodes for microscale chemistry characterization in biofilms. The first part of the dissertation focused on the development ...
Isoelectric focusing and isotachophoresis on integrated microchips
Progress in proteomic research has increased the demand for high-throughput analysis of biological samples. The workhorse for protein separation and identification is still mainly the traditional two-dimensional polyacrylamide ...
Mathematical modeling and nuclear magnetic resonance techniques to understand electrochemically active biofilms
The objective of this dissertation was to explore the electron transfer capabilities of electrochemically-active biofilms by employing mathematical modeling and nuclear magnetic resonance techniques. This dissertation is ...
