Validating microarray data with real time rt pcr
Our research focused on 5.0, 2.5, and 0.9 GHz ISM bands.
The first part of our experiment was conducted in a 103-gallon weathertight trunk container filled with sand, mostly composed of silica in the form of quartz, with no clay.

We normalized the obtained path loss measurements as a function of distance for all frequencies to remove any offset difference due to factors such as antennas.
Our results indicate that at 0.9 GHz the received signal power level decays with distance by about 1.6 d B/cm when traveling in soil.
In the second part of our experiment, we used regular gardening soil mostly composed of organic matter, perlite and vermiculite.
Vermiculite keeps the soil hydrated and is part of the clay minerals group. In both cases, we maintained the temperature at 23 degrees Celsius.
We also measured RF signal strength as we changed the vertical distances between the two antennas.
Therefore, we hypothesize that ACS gene might play an important role in poplar plants in mitigating stresses resulting from pollutant exposure.
