sgRNA construction and design

Clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeats (CRISPR) technology is a rapid, cheap, and efficient tool to edit genomes at a precise location. CRISPR technology has now been reduced to just two components: Endonuclease and g RNA. Endonuclease makes an incision at the target DNA molecule to be edited, and gRNA…

Microtube Homogenizer

Homogenization is a sophisticated method of achieving substance uniformity by altering and reducing particle sizes. Homogenization methods often include different processes, such as mixing, high-pressure processing, disrupting, emulsifying, dispersing, and stirring of samples (Dhankhar, 2014). Interestingly, the concept of homogenization dates back to 1899 when Auguste Gaulin acquired a patent…

Bright field microscopy

Microscopy is used to visualize objects that are too small to see with the naked eye. In biology, this technique enables us to examine things like bacteria and cells at a magnification of up to 10000 times their original size (BIO1000F practical manual, 2017). In light microscopy, visible light is…

Reflecting Telescopes: All You Need to Know

The history of telescopy is fascinating. The first telescope was invented in the 17th century. Note that it was spectacle-maker Hans Lippershey, who was credited as the inventor of the first refractor telescope and Galileo Galilei, who pointed the telescope towards the skies. Early refractor telescopes, however, suffered from chromatic…

Portable and Handheld Telescopes: All You Need to Know

Telescopes have undergone significant transformations since the 17th century - or when the first refractor telescope was invented. Note that spectacle-maker Hans Lippershey was credited as the inventor of the telescope and Galileo Galilei as the scientist who pointed the telescope towards the skies. In 1668 Sir Isaac Newton created…
