Understanding biological complexity arising from patterns of gene expression requires accurate and precise measurement of RNA levels across large numbers of genes simultaneously. Real time PCR (RT-PCR) in a microtiter plate is the preferred method for quantitative transcriptional analysis but scaling RT-PCR to higher throughputs in this fluidic format is(More)
To improve the effectiveness of microsurgical techniques, we have developed a semi-autonomous robotic surgical tool (called the "Smart Scalpel") as an alternative approach to the treatment of vascular lesions. The Smart Scalpel employs optical reflectance spectroscopy and computer vision to identify and selectively target blood vessels with a focused(More)
