The practical use of clinical trials

Clinical trials are very expensive.  Current funding from the NIH for clinical trials is : $7,327,474,432 (7 billion dollars) I do not think we are getting our money’s worth. 327 more words


A New Tool Provides Maps Of Protein Interactions For 2,800 Diseases

dSysMap (which stands for “Disease-mutations Systemic Mapping”) is a computational tool to interpret the effect of genetic mutations on the development of complex diseases.

The tool allows researchers to explore how alterations in more than 2,000 proteins affect the diverse biological functions in which these molecules are involved. 643 more words

Soil bacteria & my PhD. So what's it all about?

Now that I have finished my placement (you can read about my placement here) and I am back in the lab and remembered what my project is and what I’m meant to be doing, I thought I would explain a little bit about my PhD project and what my “day job” (technically not a job…) is! 602 more words


Product Focus: Annexin V-FITC Kit


  • Detects apoptosis earlier in the process than DNA-based assays (TUNEL).
  • Rapid labeling of cells. Cell staining takes only 10 minutes.
  • No cell fixation or processing required, reducing the detection time and allowing the cells to be used for further study.

Epigenetic “switch” regulates RNA-protein interactions

Although the central dogma of biology is famously simple ( DNA makes RNA makes protein), many discoveries since the term was first coined have shown that the process of gene expression is incredibly complex. 713 more words
