Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

Oligonucleotide-gold-nanoparticle (OGN) conjugates are now recognized as both powerful tools for ultrasensitive detection and building blocks for the controlled creation of nanostructures (see image). The first use of both OGN and oligonucleotide-silver nanoparticle (OSN) conjugates are used to create mixed-metal nanostructures with novel optical properties.
