Recent Desiccation-Related Ecosystem Changes at Lake Abert, Oregon: A Terminal Alkaline Salt Lake
Lake Abert, a terminal alkaline salt lake in south central Oregon, has been a key staging area for migratory waterbirds along the Pacific Flyway. In 2014, the lake shrank to about 5% of its maximum size, and its salinity ...
Bioengineering Novel Floating Nanoparticles for Protein and Drug Delivery
Gas vesicle nanoparticles (GVNPs) are hollow protein nanoparticles produced by Halobacterium sp. NRC-1 which are being engineered for protein delivery. To advance the bioengineering potential of GVNPs, a strain of NRC-1 ...
Inquiry-driven Teaching & Learning Using the Archaeal Microorganism Halobacterium NRC-1
(University of California Press, 2016)
Access to microorganisms in the classroom is essential for teaching fundamental concepts of life sciences, yet most are neither safe nor accessible for classroom instruction. Halobacterium NRC-1, a member of the Domain ...
Halobacterium Expression System for Production of Full-Length Plasmodium falciparum Circumsporozoite Protein
We recently developed a novel expression system employing the halophilic Archaeon Halobacterium sp. NRC-1 for scaled-up production and nanoparticle-display of antigenic proteins. Here, we have targeted the major human ...
