How does magnetic bead DNA extraction work?

Separating nucleic acid is an exceedingly essential tool for molecular biology. Until modern technology could be used, nucleic acid separation was a time-consuming and work-intensive process based on multiple extraction and centrifugation steps, often constrained by small yields and low … Read more

Minimum Information Necessary for Quantitative Real-Time PCR Experiments

The MIQE (minimum information for the publication of quantitative real-time PCR) guidelines reflect a significant milestone for the transition of a robust “gold standard” in the process of turning the accurate quantitative polymerase chain reaction (qPCR) from a testing technique … Read more

DNA sequencing technologies

The advent of sequencing techniques has played an important role in the study of organism genomic sequences. Tedious were early attempts to sequence DNA; 12 bases of coherent ends of bacteriophage were calculated through the usage of key extension methods … Read more
