The NEBNext Library Quant Kit delivers significant improvements to qPCR-based library quantitation for next gen sequencing. The kit for Illumina contains components that are optimized for qPCR-based quantitation of libraries prepared for Illumina next-generation sequencing platforms.
Two scientists have used magnetic resonance measurements showing how glucose is metabolized in yeast to answer the puzzle of the “Warburg Effect.”
Special brain mechanism discovered to store stress-related, unconscious memories.
Why have we never been able to manufacture fibers as strong and tough as the silks spun by silkworms and spiders? A research team has taken an important step to understanding why we still trail behind nature.
Scientists report they have deciphered the structure and unusual shape of a bacterial protein that prepares segments of DNA for the insertion of so-called jumping genes. The clamshell shape, they say, has never before been seen in a protein but connects nicely with its function: that of bending a segment of DNA into a 180-degree U-turn.
A Los Angeles-area hospital said Wednesday that some of its patients contracted an antibiotic-resistant "superbug" that has been linked to a type of medical scope and infected dozens of people around the country.
Scientists have finally figured out how the key gene tied to obesity makes people fat, a major discovery that could open the door to an entirely new approach to the problem beyond diet and exercise.
Getting older isn’t all bad. New research from the University of Lausanne in Switzerland found the older population needs less sleep than younger counterparts, and feels more awake during the day.
Seward Ltd., manufacturer of the world leading range of original Stomacher laboratory paddle blenders and accessories used in sample preparation for microbiological analysis, has launched a new range of instantly soluble, sterile media products.
In two new studies, researchers from across the country have begun to design the framework on which to build the emerging field of nanoinformatics.
Brain scans from 8-year-old children can predict gains in their mathematical ability over the next six years, according to a new study.
In experiments with 500,000 genetically engineered zebrafish embryos, scientists report they have developed a potentially better and more accurate way to screen for useful drugs, and they have used it to identify 24 drug candidates that increase the number of insulin-producing cells in the pancreas.
New research shows that bird beaks are the result of skeletal changes controlled by two genetic pathways, shedding light on the origins of one of nature’s most efficient tools.
A new way to generate oligodendrocytes has potential to enhance treatments for brain injury, MS, Alzheimer’s and more.
