JOB DETAILS About the Position A postdoctoral researcher position is available in Dr. Binyam Mogessie’s lab in the School of Biochemistry, the University of Bristol, to study the function of centromeres during the genesis of maternal age-dependent aneuploidy in mammalian oocytes. The…

Nutrigenomics – Science of Genes and Nutrition

In 400B.C Hippocrates cited ‘Let food be thy medicine’, i.e. using nutrients or food to treat yourself. Though it was cited long back the fact stands true till today. In light of this, scientists for long were trying to understand…

Ph.D./PostDoc Computational Biology – Mining a genomics compendium to identify therapeutic targets

JOB DETAILS About The Project Human cells perform highly complex tasks and are equipped with the required machinery and decision-making processes that largely remain poorly understood. Although human genes play a central role, no wiring diagram exists depicting their function….

First New Antibiotic for Drug-Resistant TB Approved In 50 Years

The problem of treating tuberculosis has been increasing in the past few decades due to drug-resistant strains. To overcome this, scientists across the world are working to find new drugs that can help fight the menace of tuberculosis. In light of this, the first new antibiotic for drug-resistant tuberculosis has been approved in 50 years by US-FDA on 14 August 2019.

Unraveling the Discovery of 2017 Nobel Prize – Know Your Biological Clock!

Have you ever observed the rhythmic pattern followed by our body in response to the day-night cycle? Do you know just like a physical watch on the wall, our body also has a clock? Yes, we do have an inherent…

Robotics – A Shifting Paradigm in Healthcare

In the future, when you enter into a hospital, you will see the robots roaming around the halls assisting patients, doctors or nurses. Before you raise concerns about robots treating humans, let us understand how valuable is the application of…

How to Write a Good Ph.D. Research Proposal?

If you want to excel in a particular area of a subject by researching and analyzing, then Ph.D. is the best option. However, before you can get into a university to do your Ph.D. program, you need to produce a…

The Emergence of Path Breaking Cryo-Electron Microscopy

In the early 1930s, Ernst Ruska and Max Knoll, a physicist and an electrical engineer, respectively, from the University of Berlin, invented the first Electron Microscope. The electron microscope uses an electron beam to produce an image of the object,…

CRISPR based SHERLOCK Technology- The Detective!

For long, bacteria are using the natural biological system to protect themselves. One such major system that has been discovered lately by scientists is CRISPR. It is an enzyme which targets the foreign genetic material, cleaves it off and prevents…
