Why Validating Your Plasmids is Key to a Successful Transgenic, and How You Can Do It Too.

Plasmids are a key tool in molecular biology. These circular pieces of DNA, also called “vectors” or “constructs”,  can be engineered to contain large made-to-order stretches of synthetic DNA. We design plasmids when we need to insert large stretches of synthetic DNA into the genome to create a model organism expressing, for instance,  a fluorescent …

Precise Knock-outs for Precise Research

Knockouts are the bread and butter of reverse genetic studies. They allow researchers to study the effects of the absence of a particular gene, protein segment, amino acid, or regulatory element, thereby enabling the researcher to determine their function. Many of the classically used and widely available knockout lines researchers rely on are not precise …
