Laser Tissue Welding

A tissue that is damaged or injured can be repaired /regenerated. Some tissue injuries can be repaired by simple methods as Stitches and staples. But as the scientific techniques are becoming more advanced, these Stitches and staples may be on their way Read more…

DNA Profiling without PCR: A Modern Approach!

Forensic Scientists usually classify individuals DNA by DNA profiling/DNA fingerprinting.The DNA isolated from biological evidence is routinely amplified by Polymerase chain reaction using short tandem repeats (STR’s) which require ~ 1 nanogram of the template DNA. Read more…

Pseudo Heart Tissues for Replacement

Artificial Hearts helps to replace the damaged heart. The first artificial heart to be successfully implanted in a human was the Jarvik-7, designed by Robert Jarvik and implemented in 1982. The first two patients to receive these hearts are Barney Clark and William Schroeder, Read more…

A Bimodal Switch determines the Fate of Cancer Stem Cells

Just as we take decisions at each stage of our life that to which path we should follow, in the same way cells also takes decision in their life. An example of cells taking wrong decision is the cancer cell which decides to proliferate without any limit rather than to a particular number. Read more…

Stiff Growth Matrix- An Ideal Environment for Cardiac Tissue Engineering

Researchers at University of California have conducted a research on the effects of the elasticity of the growth matrix in the culture media on the growth characteristics of cardiac muscle cells.  It has been found that the growth of cardiomyocytes depends on the stiffness of the growth matrix Read more…
