  • Patent number: 11021719
    Abstract: Methods and compositions are provided for assessing CRISPR/Cas-mediated non-homologous end joining (NHEJ) activity and/or CRISPR/Cas-induced recombination of a target genomic locus with an exogenous donor nucleic acid in vivo or ex vivo. The methods and compositions employ non-human animals comprising a CRISPR reporter such as a genomically integrated CRISPR reporter for detecting and measuring targeted excision of a sequence between two CRISPR/Cas nuclease cleavage sites or disruption of a sequence near a CRISPR/Cas nuclease cleavage site and/or measuring CRISPR/Cas-induced recombination of the CRISPR reporter with an exogenous donor nucleic acid to convert the coding sequence for a first reporter protein to the coding sequence for a different second reporter protein. Methods and compositions are also provided for making and using these non-human animals.

  • Publication number: 20080315181
    Abstract: Described is a Schottky diode using semi-conducting single-walled nanotubes (s-SWNTs) with titanium Schottky and platinum Ohmic contacts for high-frequency applications. The diodes are fabricated using angled evaporation of dissimilar metal contacts over an s-SWNT. The devices demonstrate rectifying behavior with large reverse-bias breakdown voltages of greater than ?15 V. In order to decrease the series resistance, multiple SWNTs are grown in parallel in a single device, and the metallic tubes are burnt-out selectively. At low biases, these diodes showed ideality factors in the range of 1.5 to 1.9. Modeling of these diodes as direct detectors at room temperature at 2.5 terahertz (THz) frequency indicates noise equivalent powers (NEP) comparable to that of the state-of-the-art gallium arsenide sold-state Schottky diodes, in the range of 10-13 W/square-root (?) Hz.

  • Patent number: 7196722
    Abstract: Multiple streams of data are streamed to a user's terminal with images from different cameras. Low resolution thumbnail images tell the user what image streams are available. A focus stream provides high resolution images from a selected camera. A user can switch the focus stream to another stream by clicking on the associated thumbnail. The users can also be provided with a thumbnail of panoramic image. Other data streams sent to the user can contain (a) audio data, (b) interactivity markup data which describes regions of the image which provide interactivity opportunities such as hotspots, (c) presentation markup data which defines how data is presented on the user's screen, (d) a telemetry data stream which can be used for various statistical data. One data stream contains a low quality base image for each data stream which can be enhanced to form a high resolution focus image.
