Lectures | 18-22 and upwards | 7 years ago | 1274 views
Rating:

The human genome sequence has been available for more than a decade, but its significance is still not fully understood. While most human genes have been identified, there is much to learn about the DNA signals that control them. This lecture describ....

Engineered zinc finger proteins and gene expression
for 18-22 and upwards,
Lectures | 18-22 and upwards | 10 years ago | 1247 views
Rating:

It has long been the goal of molecular biologists to design DNA binding proteins for the specific control of gene expression. The zinc finger design, discovered by Sir Aaron Klug 20 years ago, is ideally suited for such purposes, discriminating betwe....

Genes, worms and the new genetics
for 18-22 and upwards,
Lectures | 18-22 and upwards | 10 years ago | 1056 views
Rating:

A surprising finding over the past 20 years is that all animals have many of the same genes and that they use them in similar ways to grow and develop. These similarities mean that much of what is learned about what genes do in simple animals such as....

Reprogramming the code of life
for 18-22 and upwards,
Lectures | 18-22 and upwards | 10 years ago | 984 views
Rating:

The information for synthesizing the molecules that allow organisms to survive and replicate is encoded in genomic DNA. In the cell, DNA is copied to messenger RNA, and triplet codons in the messenger RNA are decoded in the process of translation to ....
