Chen Offers an Unusual Mechanism of Florescence Quenching

Chen Offers an Unusual Mechanism of Florescence Quenching

By Ling Xin NQPI Writing Intern A recent study at the Nanoscale and Quantum Phenomena Institute (NQPI) offers new insights into the mechanism of florescence quenching, a process in which the light emitted by excited molecules goes out quickly. By proposing that the phenomenon actually rises from intermolecular transfer rather […]

Chen Receives NIH Grant to Enhance Optical Mapping

Dr. Jixin Chen is utilizing a novel technique to
visualize genome sequences more effectively.

By Amanda Biederman NQPI editorial intern The Human Genome Project was declared complete in 2003, but the challenge to fully understand our DNA, the helical duplex that contains our genetic information, is far from finished. Researchers are now applying modern techniques to better understand this fundamental component of life and nature. […]
