GM Mosquitoes

Scientists can now put an extraneous gene into an organism, such technology has been used to create GM Mosquitoes (genetically modified). Research has shown that these GM Mosquitoes, which loss the ability to transfer malaria with the genetic modification, can out-live wild type mosquitoes. Scientis...

I don't think gene therapy can help. Because if your cell is already developed, it might not be able to be modified for new features. Only if you are at the early stage of development, then you can use gene therapy, say you have a bad gene, and before you child is born, you detect that your child ge...

I think you should get started from wiki page. In general, the DNA computer is just a theory for now. It is more powerful because millions millions of DNA molecules can fit in just one drop of water and carry out "calculation", i.e., chemistry reaction, based on very strict and simple rule...

Can we use cloning technology to save endangered species?

Just saw on the news that Bald Eagle Nears End of Life on Endangered List ( http://www.sci-tech-today.com/story.xhtml?story_id=0320004S9DLS ) Just wondering, can we using cloning technology to save endangered species? The only problem I can see is that if clones are more vulnerble to bad mutations, ...

EN, a very tough task. My first suggestion is to check bioperl. I know bioperl can render image, then you will have a perl cgi, or php call perl using system command to render an image, then in your html you reference the just-generated-image. For zooming, bioperl image have zoom function, or you ca...

I would suggest you go to pubmed, put pharmacogenomics in and search for reviews, I did it sometime before, I got 3 pretty good ones with downloadable pdf.
