Scientific Resource Navigation

Scientific Resource Navigation:
Note: The list below is not complete and there are more and more resources continously added to the SISR. For complete listing, check out Spicy Science Link List on the left side of this page. For others, read on..
Now new research suggests that bacteria are also easygoing about passing genes on to more complex organisms.

Gene expression changes brought on by heavy smoking may persist long after the smoker has kicked the habit.
Read more...
Biotechnology researchers and laboratory technicians cannot always prevent errors in their results owing to the temperature variation between samples and pipettes. Read more...

Researchers have developed a remarkably simple way to convert ordinary graphite particles into very thin but superstrong sheets that are tougher than steel and as flexible as carbon fiber but can be made much more cheaply. Read more...

Physicists interested in the mechanics of single molecules are helping open one of the blackest boxes in biology. Brendan Maher discovers how the disciplines are working together.
Read more...

"Almost every cell in the human body carries a cilium, even neurons buried deep in the brain.." Read more...

Tiny plastic fibers could be the key to some diverse technologies in the future -- including self-cleaning surfaces, transparent electronics, and biomedical tools that manipulate strands of DNA.. Read more...

Large, seemingly useless pieces of RNA - a molecule originally considered only a lowly messenger for DNA - play an important role in letting cells know where they are in the body and what they are supposed to become, researchers at Stanford University School of Medicine have discovered. Read more...

"In this cross-disciplinary project, we are developing computational and mathematical tools capable of modeling the complex cascade of biological tumor-immune interactions, and of determining effective combination treatment strategies. Our tools have the potential to provide clinical guidance in the development of new treatment protocols through preliminary evaluations of simulated scenarios." Read more...

Researchers at the J. Craig Venter Institute (JCVI) have announced the results of work on genome transplantation methods allowing them to transform one type of bacteria into another type dictated by the transplanted chromosome. Read More...

University of California-Santa Barbara researchers determined the procedure dramatically increases the in vivo lifetime of the nanoparticles, suggesting new applications for the delivery of drugs and circulating bioreactors. They said attaching polymeric nanoparticles to red blood cells might become a new way to deliver drugs. Read more...

Nanomedicine is the medical application of nanotechnology. It covers areas such as nanoparticle drug delivery and possible future applications of molecular nanotechnology (MNT) and nanovaccinology. Current problems for nanomedicine involve understanding the issues related to toxicity and environmental impact of nanoscale materials Read more...

Stem cells are primal cells common to all multi-cellular organisms that retain the ability to renew themselves through cell division and can differentiate into a wide range of specialized cell types. Research in the human stem cell field grew out of findings by Read more...

In this Exciting wonderful animation, you shall learn the approach used in Drug Designing Research nowadays! Watch Drugs in Action...
RNA interference (also called "RNA-mediated interference", abbreviated RNAi) is a mechanism for RNA-guided regulation of gene expression in which double-stranded ribonucleic acid inhibits the expression of genes with complementary nucleotide sequences. Read more...
Here you'll find quite useful links to various Human Genetic Resources along with information on Human Genome Project. Read more...

Protein biosynthesis (Synthesis) is the process in which cells build proteins. The term is sometimes used to refer only to protein translation but more often it refers to a multi-step process, beginning with amino acid synthesis and transcription which are then Read more...

An Immune system is a collection of mechanisms within an organism that protects against infection by identifying and killing pathogens. It detects pathogens ranging from viruses to parasitic worms and distinguishes them from the organism's normal cells and tissues. Detection is complicated as Read more...


Mitosis is the process by which a cell duplicates its chromosomes, in order to generate two, identical cells. It is generally followed immediately by cytokinesis which divides the cytoplasm and cell membrane. This results in two identical cells with Read more...

In biology, meiosis (IPA: /maɪˈəʊsɪs/) is the process by which one diploid eukaryotic cell divides to generate four haploid cells often called gametes. The word "meiosis" comes from the Greek meioun, meaning "to make smaller," since it results in Read more...

Histones are the chief protein components of chromatin. They act as spools around which DNA winds and they play a role in gene regulation. Six major histone classes are known Read more...
