• Genetic Engineering in Humans

    Over the past few years, the field of biotechnology has advanced at a very high rate that scientists can now “edit” plants and animals at the genomic level. Different genetic engineering or genome-editing techniques such as zinc finger nucleases, transcription activator-like effector nucleases (TALENs), meganucleases and the CRISPR/Cas9 system have aided scientists...

    Sci-hub Alternatives to Download Research Papers for Free

    Science publishing is expensive ( or pretends to be). Accessing paywalled research papers by early researchers of developing countries is becoming difficult. Most of them are using Sci-hub to download free research articles. Unfortunately, being an illegal way for downloading papers, Sci-hub keeps changing its domain name. There are...
  • Pros and Cons of Genetic Engineering

    Genetic engineering offers enormous benefits to humans. It has the potential to fulfil the human’s needs to a larger extent. For many years it is under practice to modify the organism’s genetic makeup. However, it also causes the number of harmful effects. So, we must weigh the Pros and...
  • Everything You need to know about Genetic Engineering

    What is Genetic Engineering?

    Genetic engineering is the modification of genes that code proteins vital to the functioning of a living being. “It is the process of manipulating the organism’s genome by the modification of the genes.” Recent advancements also found the role of non-gene DNA regions also. So, Genetic engineering can involve...

  • Nanobionics and Bioinspired Nanotechnology

    Bionics is the study and design of engineering system including electronic ones and these systems are based on the biological system. Bionics is also termed as biomimicry and it is similar to biologically inspired design. The word bionic was coined by Jack E. Steele in 1958. Nanobionics is the nanoscale...
  • Design Specific Primers for qPCR [Step-by-Step Guide]

    Quantitative Polymerase Chain Reaction (a.k.a qPCR) is the way of detecting the amount of product obtained in the Polymerase Chain Reaction. Detecting the presence and measuring the amount of mRNA transcript in a particular part of an organism at a particular time is one of its best applications known...
