  M.Tech or PhD
Posted by: gaurang94 - 03-15-2017, 02:43 PM - Forum: Careers - Replies (5)

Dear sir,
I am B.Tech graduate in biotechnology.. I had given TIFR GS2017 exam back in December'16. Based on this exam, and application form, I am shortlisted in IISER Pune for PhD program.. Also I have submitted application form in NCBS Bangalore.
I have also appeared for Gate'17 and I have calculated 47.35 marks based on answer key.

Now I am confused whether I should pursue PhD from IISER/ NCBS or do M.Tech from IITs.. As doing PhD for 5 years(or even 7 years in some cases) is big investment of time for me.
Please advice me whether I will get better job opportunity than IITs after my PhD.
Please advice me the correct path for my career..
Thank you in advance..

  Heart Arrhythmia: Symptoms, Causes, Treatment and Prevention
Posted by: SunilNagpal - 03-13-2017, 02:54 PM - Forum: Diseases and Diagnostics - No Replies

What is Arrhythmia?
Meaning of heart arrhythmia is there in its nomenclature itself - heart beats that tend to miss the regular rhythm or in simpler terms, irregular heartbeats are classified as arrhythmic (also called dysrhythmia).

Arrhythmia is different from 'abnormal heart rate (which normally is 50-100 beats per minute). Arrhythmias can occur with a normal heart rate, as well as with heart rates that are slow (called bradyarrhythmias) or rapid (called tachyarrhythmias).

In the United States alone, more than 850,000 people are hospitalized for an arrhythmia each year (source: medicinenet).

What causes Arrhythmia?

Following are the common causes of Arrhythmia:

Some less serious causes:

  • *Electrolyte imbalances in blood
    *During recovery from a heart surgery
    *It can sometimes occur in perfectly healthy hearts as well

Some serious causes:
  • *Coronary artery disease (plaque depositions etc)
    *Changes in heart muscles or cardiomyopathy

What are the symptoms of Arrhythmia?
Following are the common symptoms of Arrhythmia:
  • *Palpitations
    *Shortness of breath

Diagnosis of Arrhythmia:
Arrhythmia diagnosis is easy to perform using the state of art yet simplistic and cost effective instruments. Following are various diagnostic measures:

a) ECG
b) Holter Monitoring
c) Stress Test
d) Electrophysiology study (EPS)
e) Echo Test
f) Head-up tilt table test
g) Event monitoring

Treatment of Arrhythmia:
Treatment of Arrhythmia is administered based on type and severity of Arrhythmia. It is often a combination of prescribed drugs and life style changes (or surgical intervention in severe causes).

Following two categories of drugs are often prescribed:

∆ Antiarrhythmic drugs:
Such drugs come under the category of beta-blockers and help in controlling the heart rate

∆ Anticoagulant or antiplatelet therapy:
These drugs are aimed at reducing the risk of clot formation (and hence a stroke). Warfarin, Aspirin and Pradaxa are the common prescriptions in this category.

Lifestyle changes that are must for an Arrhythmic person:

1. Limited alcohol intake
2. Quitting smoking
3. Limited caffeine intake
4. No intake of stimulating substances (cough syrups and medicine for cold are also stimulating substances!)

A News that triggered the need for this thread:
LaMarcus Aldridge, an American professional basketball player, playing for San Antonio Spurs of NBA, had to go for a leave of indefinite period after experiencing heart Arrhythmia. This has been on news all around and has suddenly lead to a surge of queries about Arrhythmia. He is currently undergoing tests to ascertain the severity of the event. Best of health wished his way.

  Modification of transcription factors to increase the compound's yield
Posted by: Prill - 03-10-2017, 09:39 AM - Forum: Questions and Answers - No Replies

Hello there! I am preparing a phD project and need some advices about the Methodology. I want to test how modification of certain (characterised) transcription factor could improve the natural compund's yield in plans in vitro systems where the presence and activity of this TF has been demonstrated. However, I do not know exactly which could be the right approach to optimize the yield throughout TF-modification. Is this related to different envioronmental conditions that we can vary in order to asses the in vitro cells response (production)? or is more related to transformation activities in these cell cultures (e.g. to insert 'again' this TF in the cell cultures? Any advice, explanation and reference is welcome! Thank you very much in advance.
