If you’re currently in science research then you’re well aware of the funding deficit, and it’s likely that at one point you or a fellow scientist friend has had research (or maybe even a job) on the line while eagerly awaiting a grant score. So,
If you're a scientist working on a tight budget ― which is most of us these days ― you face a familiar dilemma: how to stretch your funds as far as they can go without compromising the quality of your work.
So you want to try a new reagent. But whether it’s to replace one that you have previously used or to start on a new project, one important question always arises: how do you know that it will work? Even if the manufacturer’s website shows data
The solar eclipse that will pass over the United States on August 21st is a twice-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see a marvel of science in action - though total solar eclipses anywhere in the world only happen approximately every 18 years, there
Allow me to set the stage: a summer evening. A group of strangers pile into a cafe to play board games. Amid the discussion of what games to play and food to order, introductions abound. Then, you hear the fellow next to you say that he works at
With the demands of research as they are, labs often become bustling centers of activity. Ultimately, we all want to generate a substantial amount of exciting data that would further our projects and publications in a timely manner despite also
The Polymerase Chain Reaction, PCR, is one of the cornerstones of molecular biology. It allows the selective amplification of a target DNA sequence that occurs only once within a large and complex DNA structure such as genomic DNA. PCR is
Sterile cell culture practice is key to avoid contamination by microorganisms, which would then interfere with the integrity of your cell system and your experiments. While most of us are careful and well trained in proper cell culture technique,
