A plasmid is an extrachromosomal circular DNA which can be replicated. DNA mapping is a technique for Plasmid mapping. Continue reading Plasmid Mapping Process
Ever since the first demonstration of gene editing technologies, the scientific community has been abuzz with debate and speculation about their potential applications. But rather less well known may be the parallel legal battles over how these powerful new methods should be regulated, one of which recently found its way to the European Union’s highest court, the CJEU. Continue reading Gene editing in the dock: how will legal rulings affect research and development?
f you work in a lab, you will know that feeling when your supervisor says ‘you have it easy, it was never like this back when I was doing lab work…’ To be fair to our supervisors, times have changed and with it, a lot of experiments are easier. The crazy thing is, these changes really have happened overnight. Continue reading Advances in the Lab: ‘Back in my day…’
Science communication is increasingly needed these days. Earlier this year, I had a chance to showcase my skills in doing some science communication using photographs as media. Continue reading Photography as a Science Communication Tool
