Problems with alcohol? 29 gene variants may explain why

By Bill Hathaway A genome-wide analysis of more than 435,000 people has identified 29 genetic variants linked to problematic drinking, researchers at Yale University School of Medicine and colleagues report May 25 in the journal Nature Neuroscience. “The new data triple the number of known genetic risk loci associated with problematic alcohol use,” said Yale’s Joel… Read More »

A Brief Introduction To Centrifuge And Few Of Its Variants

Centrifugation is a laboratory process in which centrifugal force is used for sedimentation of heterogeneous mixtures in laboratories. This process is basically used for separating two liquids that are immiscible in nature. The equipment which is used for accomplishing this laboratory process is known as centrifuge. This equipment comprises of a high speed motor and… Read More »
