Many daguerreotypes found today suffer from the effects of corrosion, biological growth, and damage from past cleaning or re-housing.
The information obtained can now be used for the care and conservation of daguerreotypes in both private and museum collections.
Project Title: Sample re-use between micro X-Ray diffraction and Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy Intern: Emily Rundlet, Colgate University Advisors: Jennifer Giaccai and Nicole Little Because MCI routinely works with subject matter that is rare, delicate, and/or valuable, often only a very small amount of sample is provided for analysis.
Proteomics research at MCI Proteomics is an area of rapid growth in biological and medical research.
Developed, and its name coined, in the mid-1990s, proteomics was an outgrowth of the genomic revolution.
It is driven by advances in molecular separation and mass spectrometry technology over the past twenty years.
