Temperature ramping - transformed

Video

Temperature ramping at 0.1 °C/min? That might be okay, if you have time to wait. For those who want their temperature ramping results sooner, the new Agilent Cary 3500 UV-Vis allows accurate and reproducible ramping at up to 30 °C/min without the leaks, noise, and mess of a multicell holder with a water circulator.

The Evolving Field of Cancer Biomarkers

Article

Given the complexity of cancer, it’s arguably unlikely that single molecules will work as clinically meaningful biomarkers for cancer. Today, biomarker discovery involves detecting patterns – characteristics or phenotypes that can be measured and monitored throughout a patient’s journey. Here, we look at two approaches being explored in this evolving field.

Genotype vs Phenotype: Examples and Definitions
Article

Any organism is a by-product of both its genetic makeup and the environment. To understand this in detail, we must first appreciate some basic genetic vocabulary and concepts. Here, we provide definitions for the terms genotype and phenotype, discuss their relationship and take a look at why and how we might choose to study them.
