The CAVEman Project creates visual maps of information about diseases that have a genetic component, such as cancer, diabetes, and Alzheimer’s. CAVE uses a high-resolution digital atlas of a human body with medical data related to specific diseases. The is a next-generation 4D (space and time) visual system to “see” disease processes and the effects of interventions, such as drugs, on these processes.

Bio-Rad Laboratories has been at the forefront of gene transfer technology for decades. The Bio-Rad Gene Pulser is synonymous with electroporation and there are hundreds (thousands?) of publications that give credit to this formidable machine. In spite of its longevity, the Bio-Rad Gene Pulser X-cell continues to be a favorite tool of cell biologists worldwide. Click here to view a flash presentation describing the system and what it does including how to set up and troubleshoot electroporation experiments.

2D Gel Electrophoresis has become an important technique for identifying proteins and evaluating their expression levels and functionality in proteomics experiments. Due to the complex nature of working with an alphabet soup of proteins, there are many factors that need to be considered when performing this technique. It is critical to pay attention to your sample preparation if you wish to obtain good results. In the latest Bio-Rad Tutorial, you will learn how to effectivley prepare samples for 2DGE and how to optimize your focusing conditions to avoid dreaded gel streaks.
