GeneGini: a simple method for describing how cells work

gr1_lrg.jpg

For more than 20 years, scientists have characterised the behaviour of cells in different circumstances by analysing the expression of their genes. This is typically done at the level of gene transcripts, and their collective expression (the 'expression profile') is known as the transcriptome. These methods are very powerful, but generate massive amounts of data (mammalian cells typically express some 20,000 gene transcripts). What is needed is a method that provides a simple summary of such data. A team from Manchester, together with colleagues from Sweden, has now come up with one...Read more

Research-used antibodies continue to be important tools for detection, analysis and characterization of proteins. As reagents, and used in combination with technological platforms, antibodies enable researchers to explore the human body and understand how building-blocks like proteins are produced, distributed and diminished, as well as monitor alteration in time, space and during disease development...Read more
