Selected research project titles: Our sincere thanks are directed to Mr. BRG looks at the identification of new therapeutic and diagnostic tools in the fight against Cancer breast cancer, ovarian Plant biotechnology research papers, prostate cancer and HIV.
Y-chromosome genotyping of African populations. Evaluating cancer specific peptides for applications in the diagnosis of cancer. For centuries, medicinal and aromatic plants have been used to combat parasites in traditional medicine and, in many parts of the world, are still used for this purpose.
The Biolabels Unit use proteomic and transcriptomic approaches to identify disease biomarkers that can be used for the development of point-of-care diagnostic systems or to improve current diagnostic methods.
Prediction of anticancer antimicrobial peptides using HIMMER and support vector machine Identification and validation of novel therapeutic antimicrobial peptides against Human Immunodeficiency Virus: Results of this research have been published Acta Horticulturae and the African Journal of Biotechnology.
Towards development of a sustainable low tech-hypoallergenic latex and byproducts agroprocessing system designed for South African small-holder farmers. Current Projects Identification and profiling of abiotic stress-responsive proteins in Arabidopsis thaliana and Sorghum bicolor.
This was made possible through Prof. Therefore, we enthusiastically present this book with numerous updates on topics of vigorous timely research. This technology is normally used to monitor proteome profiles towards the understanding of molecular mechanisms associated certain biological cues.
Specific aims would be the deciphering of molecular pathways involved in plant responses to heavy metal stress especially the reactive oxygen species ROS -antioxidant enzyme system which is an important mechanism for coping under heavy metal stress.
Targeted delivery of embelin to cancer cells. Along with the Biolabels lab, we are applying nanotechnology methods for DNA detection in a forensic context.
The development of quantum dot-based detection system for the diagnosis of breast cancer. Most of my students are currently investigating the regulation of cancer-associated proteins by the E3 ubiquitin ligase Retinoblostoma Binding Protein 6 RBBP6.
This textbook is designed for students and teachers at the same time. Research is carried out both in vitro using bacterially expressed proteins and mutants as well as in healthy and tumourous mammalian cell lines.
Screening the anti-cancer activity of novel organo-metallic compounds. Marlene du Preez My research focus is the analysis of expressed genes involved with colour development in pome apple and pear fruit skin using high throughput transcriptome analysis on next generation sequencing platforms.
Evaluating novel quinone compounds as anti-cancer agents. Other goals would be the identification of novel growth promoting bacteria that can be applied to crops plant roots in order to assist these crops during heavy metal stress, and identifying proteins and molecules involved in metal binding and changing the metals to less toxic forms will also be one of the research aims.
We are currently conducting research on mitochondrial DNA, Y-chromosome and diploid markers applied to individual identification. An in silico and molecular approach Identification of biomarkers associated with ovarian cancer: Y-chromosome forensic kit, development of a commercial prototype.
Chemical control is mostly effective, but there are some major limitations to face, including toxicity on non target organisms, the rapid development of drug and pesticide resistance, and high operational costs.
Solutions for Parasitic Problems as Old as Pyramids," this book discusses, in eight chapters, three major topics of natural parasitic control as biological, botanical, and miscellaneous control strategies. Indels genotyping of African populations. PCR and phage assay for the detection and control of pathogens in foods.
The influence of traditional and new processing technologies on the bacteria associated with Aspalathus linearis.The Journal publishes review articles, research papers, short communications and commentaries in the areas of plant biochemistry, plant molecular biology, microbial and molecular genetics, DNA finger printing, micropropagation, and plant biotechnology including plant genetic engineering, new molecular tools and techniques, genomics &.
Plant biotechnology is a field that entails applying technology on life (plants).It is a vast field that entails producing new products in a larger faster way, deviating from the conventional way of doing the same.
The Journal of the Korean Society of Plant Biotechnology(KSPBT) publishesoriginal, peer-reviewed articles dealing with all aspects of fundamental andapplied research in the field of plant biotechnology, which includes molecularbiology, genetics, biochemistry.
The Bioinformatics Research Group (BRG) The Bioinformatics Group in the Department of Biotechnology at the University of the Western Cape research mainly focuses on combining computational biology (Bioinformatics) and Biotechnology. Sep 09, · It purely depends on what are you interested, biotechnology is not a single stream to think a topic, it is widely streamed such as Microbiology, Immunology, Molecular biotechnology, Genetics, Embryology, Plant biotechnology and tissue culture, Animal biotechnology and tissue culture, nanobiotechnology, environmental.
Publishing original research, Plant Biotechnology Journal will report on significant new contributions to the field, providing a forum for the best papers in applied plant science.Download
