Superstitions And Habits At The Bench: Sensible, Or Just A Little Bit Odd?

Everybody is different when it comes to how they like to run their work space.  Some people just find a space in the lab and work wherever there’s room, sharing their tips and pipettes, while others like to have a designated area to do their lab work in, with their own equipment. Personally, I much […]

How to Extract High-Quality RNA for Microarray Analysis

Microarrays are one of the most in-depth ways of determining cellular gene expression levels of thousands of genes simultaneously.  They are able to help determine: Gene function and cellular processes Gene regulation and  interactions Gene expression levels in different cell types and how this expression is altered by the addition of various compounds or disease […]
