Variation in miRNA expression between TRV-infected tobacco plants is correlated with symptom severity and TRV-16K transcripts abundance
Zhimin Yin, Krystyna Michalak, Miroslawa Chrzanowska

In the present work, expression of certain miRNAs and their targets were investigated in three tobacco plants infected with Tobacco rattle virus (TRV) isolate Deb57 collected from Northern Poland in 2008.

Discovery of Conserved Domains for Development of Functional Markers and Identification of microRNAs from Drought Responsive Expressed Sequence Tags (ESTs) in Chickpea (Cicer arietinum L.)
Mandape M, Saikumar K, Dudhe MY, Kumar J, Meena HP, Chauhan J, Afroz A

This stidy identified that conserved domains or gene families from the ESTs could be utilized for the identification of gene-targeted markers and for development of functional markers to accelerate marker assisted backcross breeding in chickpea.

Automated Tyrosine Kinase Inhibitor Cardiotoxicity Assay in Zebrafish
Olaia Holgado, Juan Maria Virto, Isaskun Ibarbia, Patrice Dubreuil, Didier Pez, Ainhoa Letamendia, Martine Humbert, Alain Moussy, Carles Callol-Massot

The zebrafish embryos have recently gained relevance in biomedical research thanks to some of its characteristics including embryo transparency. Combined with the possibility to adapt the model with an automatic device and the reduced cost associated to each assay, the model is an ideal killer experiment in early phases of drug discovery as well as a novel method to increase the selection arguments to reduce the candidates to enter into the Drug Development process.

Screening for Optimal Algal Cell Growth and Neutral Lipid Production Conditions in Microplates
Paul Held, Xavier Amouretti, Wayne Patton and Peter Banks

Algae based products offer many potential advantages over food based sources of energy, however significant research is still required in order to make them an economically viable option. To date, algal research has not extensively utilized the tool of high throughput screening using microplates that has been successfully employed in fields such as drug discovery.
