Pittcon Release eBook Featuring the Latest Scientific Advances
December 19, 2017
Ahead of the 2018 conference and expo, Pittcon has released an eBook that highlights the latest advances in a range of scientific disciplines. It is an ‘ultimate compilation’ of scientific articles and interviews with some of the worlds leading scientists.
The eBook is organized into a number of different chapters that are divided by scientific specialty, each including recent research and advances, case studies, industry regulations, and the latest trends. The scientific specialties include Genomic Analysis, Mass Spectrometry, Food Safety, Cannabis Testing, and Environmental Chemistry.
Genomic analysis is an exciting research field as the innovations and potential applications are rapidly increasing. Every year at Pittcon the latest advances in genomic analysis are showcased, and some of these new technologies are explored in the eBook. The techniques used to perform genomic analysis are also discussed in great detail.
The chapter features an interview with Dr. Karl Deisseroth, M.D., Ph.D., who spoke at Pittcon 2017 about the applications and development of the optogenetics field. Optogenetics is a technique that renders individual neurons photosensitive and provides an extremely precise method to examine how the brain processes information and affects behavior. In the interview, Dr. Deisseroth provides an overview of optogenetics development and shares his thoughts about the future of the technique.
