What is XRF (X-ray Fluorescence) and How Does it Work?

XRF (X-ray fluorescence) is a non-destructive analytical technique used to determine the elemental composition of materials. XRF (X-ray fluorescence) is a non-destructive analytical technique used to determine the elemental composition of materials. XRF analyzers determine the chemistry of a sample by measuring the fluorescent (or secondary) X-ray emitted from a sample when it is excited by a primary […]

Why is Molecular Diagnostics a revolution in progress? Why it deserves the Limelight?

Taking the right medical decisions should be given the paramount importance and to achieve that the diagnostic tests can be the foundations. The diagnosis plays an important role not only in the initial detection process but also in prevention, treatment and also during the successful management of the current health condition. Molecular Diagnostics stands as the most dynamic […]

A Discussion of Protein Research Polymerase Chain Reaction: What Importance Does It Hold?

Polymerase chain reaction (PCR) is often considered as one of the most important scientific advances in the field of molecular biology. With this revolutionary yet inexpensive biochemical technology, it’s possible to generate millions of DNA copies from a single strand of DNA. As a result of this, PCR is considered to be one of the […]

How Genetic Analysis Is Enabling SARS-CoV-2 Vaccine Development Research

When outbreaks fade into history, vaccines are almost always the reason. Smallpox has vanished from this world and poliomyelitis has nearly done the same, thanks to widely available vaccines, and childhood immunization programs keep measles, mumps and diphtheria from inflicting far greater tragedy than they might otherwise. SARS-CoV-2 is a new and deadly virus, making […]

PRIME EDITING: HERE’S WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW TO SOUND LIKE YOU KNOW WHAT YOU’RE TALKING ABOUT

What is prime editing? Prime editing is a potentially significant update to CRISPR gene editing which serves as a “search-and-replace” editor for the human genome. Using prime editing, it is possible to directly write new genetic information into a specific DNA site. Anzalone et al. (2019) used it to edit human cells through targeted insertions and deletions to […]

What is Molecular Biology?

Molecular biology is the branch of biology that studies the molecular basis of biological activity. Living things are made of chemicals just as non-living things are, so a molecular biologist studies how molecules interact with one another in living organisms to perform the functions of life. Molecular biologists conduct experiments to investigate the structure, function, processing, regulation […]

PCR Setup—Six Critical Components to Consider

The success of PCR depends on a number of factors, with its reaction components playing critical roles in amplification. Key considerations in setting up the reactions include the following and are detailed on this page: Template DNA DNA polymerase Primers Deoxynucleoside triphosphates (dNTPs) Required cofactor: Mg2+ Buffer Featured video: Basics of PCR      Template DNA […]
