glow fluorescent. She and her research team have also attached fluorescent "tags" to compounds to track their path within cells and simple organisms. Joullie, who was born in France, said she has been intrigued by science and particularly chemistry f...
Technique reduces time spent on radiation doses
...t analysis who has applied the tool on analysis of fingerprints
for the FBI, among many other applications. "The speed allows the radiation dose to be controlled more carefully, which will provide less damage to adjacent healthy tissues." To get an accurate estimation of how much radiation should be given durin...
