Title: Aptamer-based Nanobiosensors

Abstract:  This discussion will deal with biomedical applications of semiconductor quantum dots, nucleic acid–based aptamers, and nanosensors as molecular biosensors. It focuses on the detection of analytes in biomedi­cal applications using: (1)advances in molecular beacons incorporating semiconductor quantum dots and nanoscale quenching elements;(2) aptamer-based nanosensors on a variety of platforms, including graphene; (3) Raman scattering and surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) using nanostructures for enhanced SERS spectra of biomolecules, including aptamers; (4) the electrical and optical properties of nanostructures incorporated into molecular beacons and aptamer-based nanosensors.
