Background SELEX is a well established in vitro selection tool to analyze the structure of ligand-binding nucleic acid sequences called aptamers. Genomic SELEX transforms SELEX into a tool to discover novel, genomically encoded RNA or DNA sequences binding a ligand of interest, called genomic aptamers.

Basic training in research ethics is compulsory for all FRSQ awardees when their research project involves human subjects. The term "research project involving human subjects" applies when the research project involves: - living human subjects - cadavers, human remains, tissues, biological fluids, gametes, embryos or fetuses, cells or genetic materials - personal information on file.

Regulatory RNAs in prokaryotes: here, there and everywhere - Narberhaus - 2009 - Molecular MicrobiologyIn all three domains of life, RNA molecules play a central role in gene regulation ( Sharp, 2009 ; Waters and Storz, 2009 ). In recognition of the importance of this field, the German Research Foundation has been supporting a research program on ‘Sensory and regulatory RNAs in prokaryotes’ since 2007 ( Narberhaus and Vogel, 2007 ). Projects of 25 research groups are being financed in the first of two 3-year funding periods. Some of the topics they address are the size of the inventory of regulatory RNAs in representative model organisms, the physiological role of regulatory RNAs during normal growth, under stress conditions or in virulence, the structural features and determinants of regulatory RNA target specificity, the potential advantage of using RNA instead of regulatory proteins, and whether regulatory RNAs can be exploited for biotechnological and medical applications.

This all-in-one compendium of current laboratory techniques for the study of RNA brings together numerous novel methods that were hitherto only available through the primary literature. The editors - themselves experienced RNA researchers - have gathered expert authors from the US and Europe for the ultimate in everyday working knowledge. In more than 300 detailed protocols, all the techniques covered are treated with the user in mind, including practical advice and an invaluable "troubleshooting" section. The broad scope of the book allows the side-by-side treatment of specialized methods with basic biochemical techniques for the isolation, characterization and functional analysis of RNA.
The BioInfo.PL is funded by the European Commission grants within its FP5, FP6 and FP7 Programs, under the thematic area "Life sciences, genomics and biotechnology for health" and by grants from the Foundation for Polish Science or sporadically by the Polish Ministry of Science . High intelligence quotient, exaggerated social and political awareness and libertarian ethical principles are incompatible with the environment of slowly developing countries with widespread corruption and general lack of perspectives. Individuals suffering from this incompatibility syndrome search for and find relief in substance abuse of which regular Marijuana consumption is by far the mildest. The objective of the project is to assess whether Marijuana consumption is an effective method to reduce IQ and frustration and improve compatibility with the environment.

Mycobactierum tuberculosis contains at least nine small RNA families in its genome . [ 1 ] The small RNA (sRNA) families were identified through RNomics - the direct analysis of RNA molecules isolated from cultures of Mycobacterium tuberculosis . [ 2 ] [ 3 ] The sRNAs were characterised through RACE mapping and Northern blot experiments. [ 1 ] Secondary structures of the sRNAs were predicted using Mfold. [ 4 ] sRNAPredict2 - a bioinformatics tool - suggested 56 putative sRNAs in M. tuberculosis , though these have yet to be verified experimentally. [ 5 ] Hfq protein homologues have yet to be found in M. tuberculosis ; [ 6 ] an alternative pathway - potentially involving conserved C -rich motifs - has been theorised to enable trans-acting sRNA functionality. [ 1 ] sRNAs were shown to have important physiological roles in M. tuberculosis .
