Dictionary of molecular biology Reagents

Post by Philippe » Thu Jul 21, 2005 8:55 am

Hi there everyone,
I m currently doing a work experience at St Georges university of London on HIV.
I am learning a few lab techniques and am quite interested in knowing the 'how does it work and why' of all reagents that we use (ranging from PBS to MTT,SSC,...) could anyone tell me if they know a good site with descriptions of reagents???
It would be awsome!
Cheers.
God bless you all.
Phil

There are a few databases i know which I think may be useful:
http://www.komabiotech.co.kr/product/ne ... /index.htm
The part of the above site which i have found useful is the cell cycle and signal tranduction reagents.
http://www.komabiotech.co.kr/product/ne ... ltrans.htm
(The main site is in korean or japanese but obviously the above is in English.)
Not sure if there are any reagents you are working with.

You may find something on the Pubchem databases here:
http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/gquery/gque ... ol=toolbar

I often find for drug inhbitors etc the websites of the companies which sell them have useful information so you could try the website of the company your lab buys the reagents from.

Also useful but not on reagents:
http://www.biotech.ist.unige.it/cldb/indexes.html
Database of human and animal cell lines.

Have a good day in the lab.
:P

Hi there Chemistry freako

Hi Chemistry freako,
Sorry for the late response, just read your reply now.
I m sorry but I don t know much about St Georges medical school, I ve just arrived (4weeks ago) from Belgium and I m learning stuff in R. Shattocks lab working on microbicides against HIV and HSV.
I have to say that I m really appreciating it though here. These guys a cool and very competent indeed.
Try to find out more on St Georges website maybe...
All the best and I might just see you here one of these days then :)
