  • Cellular And Molecular Biology: Biotechnology And Genetic Diversity

    BIOL101 - Cellular and Molecular Biology Biotechnology and Genetic Diversity Essay: Biotechnology is defined as the exploitation of biological processes for industrial and other purposes, especially the genetic manipulation of microorganisms for the production of antibiotics, hormones, etc (Oxford University Press [2010], Oxford Dictionary of English, Oxford; UK, 2010). The ability of a species to survive is a product of the individual species ability to adapt to its environment, as well as the…

  • Plasmid Purification Lab Report

    Purification and Quantitation of DNA and Plasmid Structure Labs 3 and 4 Biology 453 Clayton Pedigo September 14 and 21, 2016 Introduction: In this report, there are two labs being discussed. The first lab being lab 3 (purification and quantitation of plasmid DNA) involved lysing bacterial E.coli cells and retrieving the plasmid particles. The purpose of the second lab, lab 4 (plasmid DNA structure), was to use the concentrated DNA from lab 3 and compare…

  • Central Dogma Research Paper

    genetic code The vital sequence of different processes that transfers the genetic code from DNA via mRNA to finally form the functional product (finished proteins) together forms the central dogma of modern molecular biology. Thus, the genetic code is the basis of the central dogma of molecular biology. Central dogma is nothing but the flow of genetic information in all living cells including human cells from DNA to RNA to proteins. The central dogma There are three classes of sequential…

  • Pancreatic Adenosquamous Carcinoma Case Study 1

    Boyd, Benarroch-Gampel et al. 2012). A major hindrance towards development of therapies against pancreatic ASC is that no unique molecular signature has been identified for this class of pancreatic tumors. Although KRAS and TP53 are altered in pancreatic ASC (Brody, Costantino et al. 2009), the same genes are also abnormal in other forms of pancreatic cancer. The molecular mechanism that promotes pancreatic adenosquamous carcinoma is unknown. The main objective of this proposal is to identify…

  • The Complexity Of Biochemistry In The Human Body

    The longer I spend studying chemistry and biology, the more I find patterns and overlaps between the two disciplines. As I’ve matured in my studies, I have found the boundaries between the sciences to blur, which has led to my desire to do biochemistry. The course encompasses several science disciplines from biophysics and bioengineering to cellular biology and organic chemistry and looks at these from an analytical and quantitative standpoint. The diversity and interdisciplinary nature of…

  • Literature Review: Green Fluorescent Protein And Histidine Tagged Proteins

    Literature Review: Green Fluorescent Protein and Histidine Tagged Proteins Histidine and green fluorescent protein (GFP) tagging are important in molecular biology because they allow for purification, tracking, and quantification of target proteins (Ferrari et al., 2004; Cho et al., 2011; Deponte, 2012). Histidine tagging provides a method for isolating and increasing the amount of target protein recovered from a biological organism or mixed sample of proteins (Masek et al., 2011; Singh and…

  • Plasmids In Biological Research

    a replication origin, a DNA marker, and a multiple cloning site, which are sufficient for the plasmid to replicate itself and help the transformed cell to exhibit characteristics indicating successful transformation, such as drug resistance (Molecular Biology Laboratory Manual). In order for the plasmid vector to enter the bacterial cell, the cell must be competent. A common method of increasing cell competency is heat shock, which increases the permeability of…

  • Similarities Between Watson And Crick

    Nobel Prize winners James Watson and Francis Crick unraveled the mystery of molecular biology. James Watson and Francis Crick have significantly improved the world with their discovery of the structure of deoxyribonucleic acid, commonly known as DNA. The prodigious work they accomplished in their lives has had a profound impact on modern science. James Watson and Francis Crick deserve to be honored among the list of 100 influential Americans put out by The Atlantic publication. James Watson and…

  • Pancreatic Adenosquamous Carcinoma Case Study

    potential and an even worse prognosis than pancreatic adenocarcinoma[1, 2]. A major hindrance towards development of therapies against pancreatic ASC is that the molecular mechanisms underlying its pathogenesis remain poorly characterized. In this proposal I will take advantage of the expertise on RNA biochemistry and molecular biology that I have acquired during my doctoral training and combine it with the in vivo approaches developed by the Ventura lab to investigate the potential role of…
