Comparison Between Real-Time Polymerase Chain Reaction and DNA-Microarray in Detection and Identification of Mycobacterium Species

Authors: Asaad Gaber, Hzem Hamed, Essam Elsawy

Low-cost and low-density (LCD) DNA arrays offer an easy way to detect resistance as minimal laboratory instrumentation is needed. Nucleic acid-based amplification tests allow the rapid detection of Mycobacterium tuberculosis. Recently, a real-time PCR assay for M. tuberculosis complex was introduced. Real-Time PCR and DNA-micr.. Read More»

Evaluation of a cassava translationally controlled tumor protein (MeTCTP) reveals its function in thermotolerance of Escherichia coli and in vitro chaperone-like activity

Authors: Deyvid Novaes Marques, Sávio Pinho dos Reis, Cláudia Regina Batista de Souza

The TCTP (Translationally controlled tumor protein) is a highly conserved protein family found in eukaryotic organisms, which has been associated to the performance of several functions at the cellular level, as those related to growth, development, and responses against environmental stresses. However, studies on TCTP from pl.. Read More»

Development of 21 novel polynucleotide microsatellite markers in a Clithon retropictum (Gastropoda: Neritidae), using next-generation sequencing

Authors: Young Se Hyun, Ha Yeun Song, Min-Seop Kim, Hye Suck An

The neritid species Clithon retropictum (Gastropoda), an oviparous snail, is distributed in freshwater and brackish water in southern Korea, south-east Japan, southern China and Taiwan. This species is listed as a class II endangered species in Korea because of its decreasing population size. It has led to an increase in the n.. Read More»

Screening of peste des petits ruminants virus in a population of district Khairpur, Pakistan

Authors: A.K. Maitlo, J.A. Ujan, S.A. Ujjan, M. Ruk, B.A. Memon, A.A. Mahar and A.A. Ujjan

Goats are the Pakistan’s fastest growing ruminants, and Pakistan is the third largest goat producer in the world after India and China. Goat meat preference is the main reason for its increased demand. In the country, there are 25 goat breeds and two wild relatives such as Mark and Goats. At present, Pakistan has 53.8 mi..

Evaluation of genome similarities using the non-decimated wavelet transform

Authors: L.M. Ferreira, T. Sáfadi and R.R. Lima

The wavelets have become increasingly popular in the field of bioinformatics due to their capacity in multiresolution analysis and space-frequency localization; the latter particularity is acquired due to a moving window that runs through the analyzed space. As a feature, they have a better ability to capture hidden components.. Read More»
