What are Stem cells?

By | July 20, 2021

Our body is made of trillions of cells and there are different cell types performing their unique function. Among the different cell types, stem cells are unique in their remarkable ability to renew themselves. Another aspect which makes them special and really useful in therapeutics is that they can develop into any other cell type.… Read More »

CRISPR in Drosophila: A tool for targeted disruption of genes

By | May 22, 2021

The best way to study the function of a gene is by generating a mutation or knockdown/knockout so that the amount of protein coded by that gene is compromised. Several model systems are employed by scientists to study the function of human genes. Drosophila has been used as a genetic model for more than 100… Read More »
