- ... Gene delivery is the process of introducing foreign genetic material, such as DNA or RNA, into host cells. Gene therapy utilizes gene delivery to deliver genetic material with the goal of treating a disease or condition in the cell. Actual viral vectors may have side effects, while actual systems using metal nanoparticles for gene delivery are toxic. Therefore, we designed here a biocompatible tri ...

- ... Swimming pool users are a source of various contaminants and microorganisms. Conventional chlorine-based reagents treatment is commonly used to disinfect water. However, this disinfection treatment has serious serious health issues such as formation of carcinogenic by-products, i.e., trihalomethanes. In order to prevent this problem, an electrochemical disinfection process was carried out using sy ...
