May 14, 2009 4:00pm/refreshments at 3:45pm 1302 Marine Science Research Building The strikingly colorful world of insects is in large part the result of optical interference produced by the interaction of light with precisely ordered, periodic cuticular structures, incorporated into their exoskeletons. Such structural colors have recently gained tremendous interest for the use as photonic band gap crystals with enormous potential for next-generation energy and information technology concepts.

PROF. LARRY GOLD April 9th, 2009 4:00pm/ Refreshments at 3:45pm 1601 Elings Hall Classic aptamers were invented in 1989-1990. In the next twenty years the process of identifying aptamers was improved substantially - today non-classic aptamers (called SLaptamers) make possible some applications that cannot be achieved with monoclonal antibodies (or other antibody mimics).
