Shane Michaels releases a review of Andrew Fox and Peter Parks’ program for helping members achieve maximum results through proper product launching and Facebook advertising. Las
This research report categorizes the global nucleic acid isolation and purification market into technology, application, product, end user, and geography.
Johns Hopkins biochemists have figured out what is needed to activate and sustain the virus-fighting activity of an enzyme found in CD4+ T cells, the human immune cells infected by HIV.
While previous genetic research efforts have been able to identify a person’s ancestral origins within around 430 miles, a new system devised at the University of Sheffield in the United Kingdom can zero in on a person’s origin down to a particular village or island.
A next-generation genome editing system developed by Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) investigators substantially decreases the risk of producing unwanted, off-target gene mutations.
Large sections of the genome that were once referred to as “junk” DNA have been linked to human heart failure.
Although our chromosomes are relatively stable within our lifetimes, the genetic material found in our mitochondria is highly variable across individuals and may impact upon human health.
Just a few grams of the new substance are enough to tag the entire olive oil production of Italy.
Successful foray opens door to virus-like DNA nanodevices that could diagnose diseased tissues and manufacture drugs to treat them
Increasing applications of nucleic acid based-tests in molecular diagnostics are expected to drive the demand of nucleic acid purification products market in the coming few years.
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...
