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 ›

Tales of Genes and Proteins


Implications of the Human Genome Project The human genome project revealed that the human genome contains approximately 26,000 to 38,000 genes that code for proteins. This is significantly fewer than had been previously anticipated. It was found that protein-coding sequences… Read More ›
