can anyone help me by defining what is "minimal promoter" and "basal promoter"? what are the elements they consist of? what are the basic difference between the two

Hi All,

I recently started working in a biotech incubator offering space and equipment to about 5 start ups.I just wanted to cross reference some info I have been given. Can someone please offer me a rundown of the most commonly used biotech lab equipment necessary for an ordinary start up. And can you please segment that list in this way.

1) Lab Equipment that can be shared between companies

2) Lab Equipment that cannot be shared between companies

3) Lab Equipment that isn't completely necessary, but would be helpful to have in a lab space.

I hope you all can help me out. Thanks!

Dear sir,

I've completed my B.Tech degree in biotechnology this year and qualified GATE as well. Since I've not taken admission in any college, I am looking to work as an intern in some company or to do a project in R&D department (Biotech) in any institute. I kindly request you to help me and let me know if there's any such opportunity available in India (specifically Bangalore) that I could pursue.

Thank you

I Yashul Bhardwaj from haryana, i recently qualify the JNU-CEEB 2019 for Biotech with rank of 15.
It is basically a DBT Sponsored Program with the fellowship equivalent to GATE.
After seat allotment, i got allotment at West Bengal University of Technology (Kolkata).

My Request is that, is this alloted university is good enough to pursue the as the N.I.Ts are in terms of the hands on training and placement ?? Because I am not getting much info about this from net surfing.

Kindly suggest me, should I go for in this university or not??  ... as the seat blocking procedure is about to begin from 11th to 14th July.
Kindly response on this as soon as possible.

I would like to know the compiled list of all branches of Mtech / MS  offered by the IITs and other premier institutes in India for which one can apply through valid score in GATE biotechnology etc. I want to know this to get an idea of what other branches one can apply for in addition to biological sciences with a valid score in GATE BT. Kindly let me know.Thanking in advance.

29-year-old lab technician from New Jersey, USA. I have been meaning to join a forum like this about biotechnology. I'm looking forward to checking the place out.

Is it possible to embed transmembrane domain to the protein by inserting sequence which codes mentioned domain to gene that codes the enzyme, in the way that it would allow the protein to become an IMP (integral membrane protein) without depriving it of its enzymatic properties?

I would really appreciate a helpful answer.

Hi Everyone!
I am really pleased to join your community. I find it really enriching and useful.

Today I am writing to you with a really broad question regarding background referred to analytical chemistry.
Currently, I am writing my Master thesis and due to the fact that am only an engineer of biotech; some from aspects of pure analytical chemistry is really not understandable.

Honestly, I am left without an advisor and have nobody to ask for help.
Lets move to the point; I am ordering my results and found myself in a position where I do not understand the difference in the application of cyclic voltammetry and square wave voltammetry.

I made few measurements of a suspension containing an enzyme and a buffer ( not activity one ). I hold in a hand a publication where research group applied a square wave voltammetry and as a standardized value; applied a specific pick on exact potential. I will be really grateful for receiving a short explanation about the difference between those two techniques.

Hello all,
I'm a student doing my bachelor's in Biotechnology Engineering.
Hope I can contribute and learn more from this platform.
Thank You

Biotechnology is the application of technologies to the conventional biology with a goal of betterment of human life. The scope of biotechnology is vast and understanding the basics of biotechnology has become essential for the life science students. One of the important areas of biotechnology is recombinant DNA technology. This technology is the essence of many useful strategies widely used in healthcare, medicine, and nutrition. This article gives the basic idea about the topic and discusses its scope.
Recombinant DNA is the DNA which is formed by the combination of DNA from two or more sources. While studying the basics of this technology, one must understand some important terms and students should know about:
·        Genome: The genetic constitution of an organism
·        Clones: Genetically identical organisms
·        Cloning: Introduction of foreign DNA into the host cell
·        Vector: Carrier of the gene of interest (ex. Plasmid, Phage)
·        Marker: Gene for the identification of transformant cells
·        Insert: Gene of interest carried by the vector to the host cell
·      Recombinant DNA: DNA formed by joining the DNA from different origins, mostly used for a combination of vector and insert
·        Host: Recipient cell for foreign DNA
·        Copy number: Copy number of a vector denotes the number of copies it can produce within a cell
Tools used for recombinant DNA technology are the molecules, mainly enzymes, used for the manipulation of DNA like cutting, joining, end modification etc. (1). Some are enlisted below.
·        Restriction enzymes:  Popularly known as “molecular scissors”
·        Ligase: Popularly known as “molecular glue”
·        Topoisomerase
·        End modification enzymes: Polynucleotide kinases, nucleases
·        Linkers, adapters, and connectors.
The central dogma of recombinant DNA technology
A.  Insert selection: Insert is typically the gene of interest which we desire to clone
B.   The formation of a recombinant DNA: It involves the use of restriction enzymes as well as a ligase. It is the joining of an insert to a vector.
C.   Cloning of this recombinant DNA into a host cell.
D. Expression of the gene of interest
The whole aim for gene transfer exercises is either
A.  Phenotypic expression of a foreign gene in an organism as can be seen in case of crop improvement techniques
B.   Production of a particular protein in bulk
Ex. Heterologous protein production like the production of human insulin in bacteria
This technology is widely used in healthcare industries, agriculture, clinical research etc. Apart from this, it is also used for gene therapies including various genetic disease.
While using this technology, expressing a foreign gene in a given host is not that easy. Obviously, the host cell has to make a lot of compromises. Research is going on to address this issue (2). Recombinant DNA technology is further being expanded as synthetic biology (3), which will be the main driving force for therapeutics, food and energy sector and a lot more industries.
