It’s hard to overstate the importance of amplification technology in molecular biology. Reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) amplifies sections of messenger RNA so they can be quantified – we’d have a much dimmer view of the transcriptome without it. Whole-genome amplification helps us analyze genes in single or limited cells, opening up a whole new… Read article →

Environmental toxin biomarkers

What impact do environmental contaminants have on human health? Until recently, it was difficult to adequately address this complex question. From animal models and cell and tissue culture studies, it has been clear for quite some time that contaminants ranging from heavy metals to organic chemicals like BPA, PCBs and dioxins can be extremely detrimental… Read article →
