However, the trade off will be antenna size and its design complexity.
Our results conclude that it is critical to carefully manage signal power and understand antenna design when wireless biosensors are placed in an area with high quantity of clay content.
Therefore, soil monitoring and understanding changes in soil ecosystem are considered to be important aspects of any environmental monitoring.
The recent emergence of Wireless Biosensor Networks (WBNs) promises addressing many ecological questions, particularly related to soil, though providing uninterrupted real-time data from various biosensors using RF signals.
The transformed plants were selected through kanamycin resistance and grown till T3 (third transgenic) generation.
The ACS gene expression of these plants will be confirmed through q PCR.
The ability of the transformed plants to absorb pollutants will be evaluated by performing gas chromatography mass spectrometry analyses to measure pollutants in the inlet and outlet airflow in order to quantify the pollutant deposition rate.This study was carried out in collaboration with Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, Division of Earth Sciences.Poster #: 3 Campus: CSU Long Beach Poster Category: Agriculture/Biofuels/Environment Keywords: Arabidopsis, Senescence, Epigenetics Project Title: A TIR-NBS-LRR Class Disease Resistance Protein Mays be a Positive Regulator of Developmental Senescence in Arabidopsis thaliana Author List: Mendoza, Victor ; Undergraduate, Chemistry & Biochemistry, California State University, Long Beach, Presenting Author Brusslan, Judy; Biological Sciences, California State University, Long Beach Abstract: Leaf senescence is the final stage in leaf development in which the leaf reallocates its nutrients to growing parts of the plant.
