How important is time in science? How important is time in your scientific life? If you use qPCR, there is good news for you. Here are 5 ways to reduce the time for your qPCR. These are not the usual tips such as aliquoting primers, using designated areas (three room rule) and equipment for the pre- and post-amplification steps to reduce the risk of contaminations. So let’s get into it!

-A funny take on the biochemical and molecular biological regulation of the Christmas feeling- Christmas season, the long anticipated and very special time of the year. It is widely known that this time is connected to temporal changes in human emotions and behaviour. However, the biochemical and molecular biological mechanisms that underlie these changes are not well-established yet. Nevertheless, they seem to be linked to the inner clock, also called biological rhythm, which is a central...

Build the trust in your meat by building transparency When consumers go to the shop to buy their weekly groceries, they think about the origin of the meat and the rearing conditions of the animals. Is the meat hormone- and antibiotics-free, organic, from grass-fed and free-range raised animals? How can meat processors and retailers assure their customers that the meat they buy is actually the one declared on the packaging? Assurance is especially important when it involves premium meat products...

The continuous development of antibiotic resistance by pathogens transformed the antibiotic crisis into one of the biggest threats to global health today (World Health Organization (WHO)). Everybody has been or will be confronted with this issue in one way or another at some point in their life. Worldwide implementation of bacteriophage therapy, a treatment that employs the natural enemies of bacteria, is impeded by the lack of common manufacturing procedures which meet international quality...

Have you jumped on the CRISPR hype train? Have you bought into the “CRISPR will change the world… it will change life” hype? It is time to derail this HYPE TRAIN! Everybody talks about CRISPR, but let’s get serious. It’s mostly the same story repeated again and again. Media often promises us the stars but, eventually, the next big thing will not live up to its expectations. Remember RNAi? It was immensely hyped, in fact, as the breakthrough of the year by Science (Couzin-Frankel,...

There is no such thing as moral or immoral biology. Biology is well done, or badly done. That’s all. And genetic engineering is a great way to do it well. Microorganisms, especially bacteria and yeasts, are perfectly suited for modifications to cheaply create all the compounds that the industry needs to supply us with the conveniences and must-haves that we value so much today... and that we will value even more in the future! It is the way to go. We should use microorganisms for our own...
