This study found that SSR marker was more informative compared to ISSR marker in determination of gene diversity, polymorphic information content (PIC), and heterozygosity in this population. SSR also revealed high ability in evaluating diversity levels, genetic structure, and relationships of torch ginger due to their codominance and rich allelic diversity. High level of genetic diversity discovered by SSR markers showed the effectiveness of this marker to detect the polymorphism in this germplasm collection. PMID: 31198786 [PubMed - in process]

ConclusionBecause the tip of instrument is not completely visible in vNOTES surgery, manipulation helps to deflect the uterus and its attachments away from important structures, thus preventing inadvertent thermal damage from the tip of the instrument. This is a feasible and safe technique for vNOTES hysterectomy.

Its recent chemoprofiling has revealed high concentration of Epimedin B, C &Icariin, thus matching quality standards of Herba Epimedii. DNA barcode was hitherto unreported in E.elatum. Three plastid genes (matK, rbcL &trnH-psbA) and one nuclear region gene (ITS) were partially sequenced to devel...

We have generated an induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC) line, IGIBi001-A from an Indian sickle cell patient with a homozygous HBB gene mutation using Sendai virus reprogramming system. Characterization of IGIBi001-A showed that these iPSCs are transgene-free and expressed pluripotent stem cell markers. They had a...

(Natural News) It is a medical fact that people of African descent have enhanced natural immunity to various viral infections, including Ebola. In fact, migrants from Africa may carry Ebola and show no symptoms whatsoever. This simple, irrefutable fact appears to be completely unknown to all U.S. doctors, journalists and CDC “experts” who claim Ebola...

Authors: Othman F, Ambak R, Siew Man C, Mohd Zaki NA, Ahmad MH, Abdul Aziz NS, Baharuddin A, Salleh R, Aris T Abstract Dietary consumption and other environmental factors are known factors associated with sodium intake. However, little is known about the influence of energy intake on this relationship. The aim of this study was to determine the risk factors associated with high sodium intake assessed from urine sodium excretion and the influence of energy intake. A nationwide, cross-sectional study was conducted from 2015 to 2016 among Malaysian health staff (MySalt 2015). A total of 1027 participants from 1568 tar...
