Developmental biology is the study of the process by which organisms grow and develop. Modern developmental biology studies the genetic control of cell growth, differentiation and “morphogenesis”, which is the process that gives rise to tissues, organs and anatomy.
One of the important goal for developmental biologists is to understand how humans develop from a single celled embryo to highly complex multi celled adult and also to find cures to different diseases we encounter during our life span.This is all possible when one can understand the mechanisms underlying various aspects of …
Firefox is great browser used by many and what makes it even more useful is the fact that it comes with an option of some very handy Add-ons. Some days back, Nick Oswald, editor-in-chief of the Bitesize Bio blog posted a blog entry on new Firefox Add-ons for scientists and that was a follow up to his famous post from 2007. He describes some very useful Add-ons for the research scientists and I would encourage to read his blog posts for all possible add-ons from Firefox. Today i just describe …

The symposium is being organized as a satellite meeting to the international Human Genome Symposium being held in India this year (Sept 2008). The focus of the satellite symposium is to highlight genomic approaches in model organisms and the relevance of these genomic approaches in furthering understanding of complex diseases and drug discovery. The range of model organisms covered includes invertebrates (Drosophila and C. elegans), and vertebrates (Zebrafish and mouse) with a few related talks on human disease.
October 1-2, 2008
Deadline for registrations : 1 September 2008
Conducted @ NCBS …
Drosophila happens to be my favourite animal ever since I first started working with them in 2001.This tiny arthropod has solved many biological puzzles ,thanks to various researchers working on fruit fly all over the world.Initially the word genetics might be scary for beginners as it involves complicated crosses ,which again requires one to remember various genotypes, marker associated with balancers chromosomes and way to recognize them.But I can assure, with some proper guidance and will to learn makes understanding Drosophila Genetics interesting . Many books from various publishers …
In my post few days back we have looked into the biological classification of animals based on 18s RNA study and in this one we see what changes are in store when you do phylogenomics analysis.Modern evolutionary biology has come a long way from Linnaeus days to molecular phylogenetics (Field et al 1988 )(In this method: rRNA is the most conserved (least variable) gene in all cells For this reason, genes that encode the rRNA (rDNA) are sequenced to identify an organism’s taxonomic group, calculate related groups, and estimate …
I came across some nice web pages….through stumble upon……..These web page will be very useful for the beginners…….. they show some very good animation of various pathways,structures of biomolecules,organization of cell and many more………Learning science this way will be helpful for many.
Here are the links for those:
This site provides animated overview of cell biology fundamentals.

An animated primer of 75 experiments that made modern genetics.
The DNA Learning Center (DNALC) is the world’s first science center devoted entirely to genetics education and is an operating unit of Cold …
