It takes a 'consortium': Researchers develop metabolic engineering technique

It takes a 'consortium': Researchers develop metabolic engineering technique Grantee News thomas.johnson Thu, 09/12/2019 - 10:16 For years, scientists have explored ways to alter the cells of microorganisms in efforts to improve how many products are made, including medicines, fuels, and even beer. But altering the genetic and regulatory processes that take place within cells … Continue reading It takes a 'consortium': Researchers develop metabolic engineering technique

Real-time algorithm for Poissonian noise reduction in low-dose fluoroscopy: performance evaluation

Quantum noise intrinsically limits the quality of fluoroscopic images. The lower is the X-ray dose the higher is the noise. Fluoroscopy video processing can enhance image quality and allows further patient’s d... Source: Biomedical Engineering Online

Post-processing radio-frequency signal based on deep learning method for ultrasonic microbubble imaging

Improving imaging quality is a fundamental problem in ultrasound contrast agent imaging (UCAI) research. Plane wave imaging (PWI) has been deemed as a potential method for UCAI due to its’ high frame rate and ... Source: Biomedical Engineering Online
