AcroPrep 384 multi-well filter plate uses patented technology to eliminate lateral cross contamination by individually sealing each well. Laboratories can reliably process 384 samples in minutes, increase output and identify promising drug targets to treat diseases.
by Elizabeth Tolchin Acknowledging the importance of model organisms in pharmaceutical research, Novartis appointed Susan Gasser, PhD, to director of the Friedrich Miescher Institute (FMI) in Basel, Switzerland.
The number of PCR-based methods for plant molecular research has increased dramatically. Application of these methods alone, or in combination with other tools, range from marker assisted selection, molecular mapping, varietal identification and phylogeny research to genomics and chip technology.
by Elizabeth Tolchin Optical mapping of DNA derived from brain tumors (oligodendrogliomas) could help pinpoint the genetic variation that determines the effectiveness of drug therapies in patients, according to researchers.
by Elizabeth Tolchin Are pseudogenes important for understanding the human genome? Yes, says a group from Yale who catalogued 8,000 processed pseudogenes in the human genome.
