Hybridization

Are viruses hiding within us?


Recent research results indicate that viral sequences are part of us. Endogenous viral elements (EVEs) or endogenous retroviral elements (ERVs) have been identified in eukaryotic genomes including the human genome. The findings revealed the enormous scale of the invasion of… Read More ›

DNA Methylation


What is DNA Methylation? . DNA methylation is a biochemical reaction that adds a methyl group to DNA nucleotides. The methylation of DNA has been found to alter the expression of genes in cells during development. BSI can help you… Read More ›

Thermodynamics of DNA Hybridization


Knowledge of DNA thermodynamics is crucial for the design of PCR probes or any other oligonucleotide based hybridization probe! . Since DNA hybridization does not strictly follow the Watson-Crick pairing rules DNA hybridization experiments often require optimization. A DNA oligonucleotide… Read More ›
