Multipodal nanoparticles (NPs) with controlled tethers are promising principal building blocks, useful for constructing more complex materials, much like atoms are connected into more complex molecules. Here we report colloidal sphere templating as a viable means to create tetrapodal NPs with site-specific tethers. Amorphous sol-gel materials were molded by(More)
Fertility and immunity are concurrently upregulated in Drosophila melanogaster females after normal mating, potentially requiring physiological trade-offs. Using a novel bacterial introduction method, I observed female copulatory Serratia marcescens receipt and infection. Immuno-competent females surviving copulatory S. marcescens exposure had significantly(More)
