(2) E-cigarettes smoke likely to cause DNA-damage!
(3) Quantum dot decorated whole-bacterial cells as fluorescent reporters to probe cellular damages.
(4) Aptamers as biorecognition elements for cancer detection.
(5) Microbial catalysis of engineered nanomaterials.
(1) Synthetic ssDNA aptamers as affinity ligands for cancer biomarkers.
