  • modification
  • While his approach is novel, the idea of controlling mosquito populations through genetic modification has actually been around since the late 1970s. (pbs.org)
  • New genetic modification techniques (NGMTs) are increasingly being developed and applied to generate new varieties of food crops and livestock animals. (ensser.org)
  • It focuses only on the intended outcome of a theoretical intervention into the genome, and ignores or denies the uncertainties and risks inherent in the genetic modification process and its real behaviour after release, as well as indirect negative impacts. (ensser.org)
  • These include: Molecular and biochemical techniques Electrophoresis and blotting Immunostaining Chromatography Mass spectrometry PCR and sequencing Microarrays Imaging technologies Light, fluorescence, and electron microscopy MRI PET X-ray Genetic engineering/modification Transfection Viral transduction Transgenic model organisms Electrophysiology techniques Patch clamp EEG, EKG, ERG In silico techniques Bioinformatics Computational biology Biomedical scientists typically obtain a bachelor of science degree, and usually take postgraduate studies leading to a diploma, master or doctorate. (wikipedia.org)
  • Genetic modification has been used to broaden the scope of lignocellulose which can be used by E. coli. (wikipedia.org)
  • cereals
  • While cold and moisture exposure are a normal part of the life cycle of autumn-seeded winter cereals, the vernalization technique claimed to increase yields by increasing the intensity of exposure, in some cases planting soaked seeds directly into the snow cover of frozen fields. (wikipedia.org)
  • genetically
  • Advocates of NGMT use in environmental applications claim that viruses, microbes, plants or animals produced via these techniques are not genetically modified organisms (GMOs) per se and should not be regulated as such. (ensser.org)
  • humans
  • If the findings can be safely transferred into humans, it might eventually be possible for men with Klinefelter syndrome (XXY) or Double Y syndrome (XYY) that are infertile to have children through assisted reproduction using this technique. (eurekalert.org)
  • That said, there's still a long way to go before the technique could be tested in humans. (sciencealert.com)
  • strains
  • Genetic diversity plays an important role in plant breeding because hybrids between lines of diverse origin generally display a greater heterosis than those between closely related strains. (jacketflap.com)
  • evaluate
  • The aim of this study is to evaluate the effectiveness of genetic programming relative to that of more commonly-used methods for the identification of components within mixtures of materials using Raman spectroscopy. (springer.com)
  • Scientists
  • Scientists are increasingly developing new techniques to investigate the structure and function of DNA. (powerofthegene.com)
  • The good news: By combining the DNA of parents with genetic material from a third person, scientists might have developed a way for women with rare genetic disorders to have healthy children. (discovermagazine.com)
  • The resulting embryo would carry DNA from three parents, and to prove the technique could work in the clinic, scientists would have to try the technique in healthy human embryos - a task that would be "impossible" due to the associated ethical issues [ The Scientist ] , argues researcher Jun-Ichi Hayashi, who wasn't part of the project.

  • Benjathapanun N., Boyle W.J.O. and Grattan K.T.V. Classification of UV-Vis spectroscopic data using principal component analysis and neural network techniques. (springer.com)
  • material
  • Polymerase chain reaction (PCR), developed by Kary Mullis in 1983, allowed small sections of DNA to be amplified and aided identification and isolation of genetic material. (wikipedia.org)
  • generate
  • Physical mapping techniques used to generate a gene map include: Restriction mapping, Fluorescent in situ hybridization (FISH), and Sequence tagged site (STS) mapping. (wikipedia.org)
