Explaining Cancer Through Narrated Cartoons

 :: Posted by American Biotechnologist on 08-16-2011

The New York Times has a great cartoon video explaining three predominant theories of how cancer progresses from a single cell into a metastatic tumor. The narrated video discusses:

  1. The microbe theory-whereby an otherwise symbiotic relationship between bacteria and their host is spoiled by miscommunication
  2. The Junk DNA theory
  3. The MicroRNA theory-whereby microRNA either prevents mRNA from reaching the ribosome or intercepts and changes the mRNA message

Bio-Rad Laboratories recently launched the Precision Melt Supermix, which is a high-perfomance supermix for both genotyping and epigenetic analyses.

In honor of this launch, we invite you to review some of the resources (including technical notes, review articles and video tutorials) that we have posted on high resolution melt analysis. Feel free to to click on any of the links below for further details:

A video dedicated to all science graduate students

 :: Posted by American Biotechnologist on 01-23-2011

It took me 3 years to complete a 2 year Master’s degree. Why? Because I got stuck with someone else’s poorly planned excuse of a project. My PI promised that if I carefully executed the protocol my first authored paper would be “in the bag.” Have you ever done a DNA gel shift assay? If you have, you know that nothing can be further from the truth than an “in the bag” promise.

This video submission to the Molecular and Human Genetics Retreat 2011 at Baylor College of Medicine totally resonates with me. Thanks to Postdoc Forum for pointing it out!
