I would like this site to be a place were principal investigators, graduate students and lab technicians interact, asking for help from one another and hopefully helping others along the way. The blog will have many types of posts including technical posts, video tutorials, webinars, fun posts and general interest stories. But most importantly, I would like to be responsive to the requests of our readership (or should I say contributorship?) and let the discussion go wherever you want to take them. I will endeavor to post content 3-5 times per week so you should be sure to visit often.

Analysis of gene expression in cell cultures is frequently limited by the number of samples that can be processed using traditional real-time PCR workflows. Here we evaluate Bio-Rad’s SingleShot™ SYBR® Green Kit, which eliminates the time-consuming cell harvesting and RNA isolation steps and permits use of crude cell lysates as input samples for cDNA synthesis.

I read a very interesting article in the Guardian based on a 2010 report from the Royal Society claiming that only 3.5% of science PhD graduates end up pursuing a career in academic research and that only 0.5% of graduates will ever carry the distinguished title of University professor. While these figures may seem astounding, […]

G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs) are the largest class of cell surface receptors in our cells, involved in signal transmission across the cell membrane. One of the biggest questions is how a signal recognized at the extracellular side of a GPCR induces a sequence of conformational changes in the protein and finally evokes an intracellular response.
