  • Hello all, This blog is quite informative for people like me as I'm always seeking new resources to learn new things. I was wondering if we were to use video animation as a way to teach the younger generation of students about micro-organisms, how would that go? Instead of following the conventional path of reading books and explaining them, showing videos that depict the actual images in the books will help kids/ students better understand what they're trying to study. We can always avail assistance from https://vidnado.com.au Regards Amelia
  • Hi there, can someone please explain to me why when doing RT (qualitative) PCR, you would use a target AND reference gene to check for the presence of products? What is the purpose of the target gene?? TIA
  • Hi everyone. I've been thinking about this for a long time and lately with the terrifying implications of climate change being felt, I feel compelled to explore this idea. Using crispr technology, is it within the realms of possibility to isolate useful sequences from chloroplasts to convert sunlight into ATP and the sequences from electrocytes (specialist cells in electric eels et al) to take that ATP and convert it to stored electricity. I have always been fascinated by the idea of biological solar panels, but with crispr it seems to me, forest power generation is perhaps possible. Speculating even more wildly, mycelium may play a role in collection. Anyway, I welcome your thoughts and recognise this is wildly speculative. david
