• It is a play on words from Southern Blot , an essentially identical procedure used to detect DNA developed by the English scientist Ed Southern . (everything2.com)
  • Avance Biosciences' cGMP/GLP compliant genomic and microbial assays make use of the advanced technologies including real-time PCR, ddPCR, Sanger sequencing, next-gen sequencing, Southern blot, and more. (avancebio.com)
  • There also exists a similar, but different method of detecting protein s called a Western Blot . (everything2.com)
  • The other blotting techniques emerged from this method have been termed as Northern (for RNA), Western (for proteins), Eastern (for post-translational protein modifications) and Southwestern (for DNA-protein interactions) blotting. (sigmaaldrich.com)
  • Reverse northern blotting was used in a 2013 study in Gene in which the author identified a number of genes responsible for early cold-resistance response in the cold-hardy citrus fruit Poncirus trifoliata. (wikipedia.org)
  • For example, many scientists researching Huntington disease or breast cancer are able to determine the expression patterns of the genes responsible for these diseases using blotting techniques. (wikibooks.org)
