You know how we used to just have bandages? Well soon we could have bandages containing "nanoneedles" which transmit genetic information to damaged parts of the body.
They seem to be in the news every day: Mitochondria. But what the heck are they, really? We give you a basic rundown so you never have to worry again.
The interdependence of genetic material, proteins, and fatty lipids have long created a sort of paradox when it comes to trying to figure out how life on Earth originated, but a new study has proposed that all three factors originated from a pair of simple compounds.
DNA probes help scientists to detect a specific gene in a long DNA sequence. According to Dr. Michael A. Pfaller, DNA probes are “single-stranded pieces of nucleic acid, labeled with a specific tracer (isotope, enzyme, or chromophore), that will hydrogen bond (hybridize) with complementary single-stranded pieces of DNA (or RNA) under the appropriate conditions of pH, temperature, and iconic strength.” The Foundation for Genomics and Population Health website has a helpful video about...
Bacillus subtilis, also known as hay bacillus or grass bacillus, is a Gram-positive, catalase-positive bacterium commonly found in soil. It is rod-shaped and a member of the genus Bacillus. It also has the ability to form a tough, protective endospore, allowing the organism to tolerate extreme environmental conditions. B. subtilis has historically been classified as an obligate aerobe, though recent research has proven this to not be strictly correct. It is not a human pathogen although...
