Aptamer Data from Base Pair Biotechnologies

submitted by: BasePairBio

Aptamers have until recently been tightly held by IP restrictions, Base Pair Biotechnologies Founder Bill Jackson presents information and data they have generated on aptmers in diverse assays such as biosensor and lateral flow. Presentation is from the American Society for Cell Biology meeting Dec 16, 2012

Does transportation mode modify associations between distance to food store, fruit and vegetable consumption, and BMI in low-income neighborhoods?

submitted by: fuller.daniel
Background: A consistent body of research has shown that the neighborhood food environment is associated with fruit and vegetable (F&V) consumption and obesity in deprived neighborhoods in the United States. However, these studies have often neglected to consider how transportation can moderate associations between food accessibility and diet-related outcomes. Objective: This study examined associations between distance to primary food store, fruit and vegetable consumption, and BMI...
