Elimination of the floor plate, a row of distinctive cells at the ventral midline of the spinal cord, dramatically increased the frequency of errors made by specific growth cones in the zebrafish embryo. This demonstrated that the floor plate participated in guiding specific growth cones at the ventral midline of the spinal cord. However, since a(More)
A fully integrated microdevice and process for forensic short tandem repeat (STR) analysis has been developed that includes sequence-specific DNA template purification, polymerase chain reaction (PCR), post-PCR cleanup and inline injection, and capillary electrophoresis (CE). Fragmented genomic DNA is hybridized with biotin-labeled capture oligos and pumped(More)

Abstract The goal of this study was to survey optical and biochemical variation in cell populations deposited onto a surface through touch or contact and identify specific features that may be used to(More)
Mixtures are a commonly encountered form of biological evidence that contain DNA from two or more contributors. Laboratory analysis of mixtures produces data signals that usually cannot be separated into distinct contributor genotypes. Computer modeling can resolve the genotypes up to probability, reflecting the uncertainty inherent in the data. Human(More)
BACKGROUND Microfabricated genetic-analysis devices have great potential for delivering complex clinical diagnostic technology to the point of care. As a demonstration of the potential of these devices, we used a microfabricated capillary array electrophoresis (microCAE) instrument to rapidly characterize the familial and genotypic relationship of twins who(More)
