Expert talks how to purify more DNA from challenging tissues

Mechanical and enzymatic lysis both have their drawbacks when isolating genomic DNA from solid tissue samples. While mechanical disruption tends to provide high yields from tissue samples, it does damage the nucleic acids. Enzymatic lysis, like Proteinase K digestion, allows extraction of nucleic acids without damage, but requires long incubation times and provides lower yields… Read article →

The reproducibility crisis: what can we do?

There’s a growing trend of irreproducible results in biomedical research. In a previous post, Kurchi Bhattacharya reported on recent studies finding that a surprising number of scientists could not only not reproduce the results of their colleagues, but many found their own results difficult to reproduce as well. Much of the reproducibility problem likely has… Read article →
