Prokaryotic DNA replication: Replication class 2

How does replication occur in prokaryotes? In 1963, J Cairns reported the process of replication in E.coli bacteria by autoradiography. Replication is a process in which a DNA molecule is copied. From thedouble-stranded DNA, two daughter dsDNA is generated and is transferred to two different daughter cells. Before proceeding to this article please read the General

Role of MgCl2 in PCR reaction

The Role of MgCl2 in PCR reaction is to enhance the DNA amplification by boosting the activity of Taq DNA polymerase. The polymerase chain reaction is one of the important experimental procedure in downstream genomic research. It generates millions of amplicon for the gene of our interest. The process is as similar to replication but

Behavioural Genetics class 1: Science behind behaviour

Structural and biochemical traits are well studied in modern day science. We have enough data regarding genes and its governing characters. Each protein is encoded by the particular gene and is important for the survival of an organism.  But can we study behavioural characters of an organism based on Genetic traits? Well, a behaviour is
