ABSTRACT Tardigrade also known as water bear are one of the extremophiles which are said to have survived five mass extinction events. This tardigrades species are so stress tolerant that it can survive the vacuum of space, high and low temperatures, and strong doses of ionizing radiations. Ramazzotius varieornatus is one of tardigrade species, which have the genome size of 75 to 800 mbp of DNA, revealed to have about 19000 proteins.The genome is protected by a protein called DSUP, is one kind of a protein found…

“I will not be able to complete my graduate studies, I am very dumb”, a sad and gloomy face of my lab mate popped up as I saw her rising across from her chair. “I even don’t comprehend the fundamentals of my work and my “simple” experiments fail miserably” continued the explanation. There was sense of dejection as the fear of her PhD work rose over her. “You have lots of data and you are going good in PhD” my voice rose as I saw clear signs of despondency on her face. If this sounds usual to you, probably you…

It has been 5 years since Biotech Express was started with a notion to unite scattered Biotech academia and industry when there was no source of Indian news and information for academicians, scientists and industrialists. In August 2013 the first issue of Biotech Express was released and at that time our main focus was entirely to cover Academia and research of Biotech, so we started with the very basic topic of Model organisms in Biological research because no experiment can be completed without having starter culture. So in 12 issues we covered model organisms from smallest to largest which are…

Introduction Long-term undifferentiated cell culture systems derived from inner cell mass of developing embryos are called as embryonic stern (ES) cell culture systems (Evans and Kaufman, 1981; Martin, 1981). These cells are pluripotent in nature and can be induced to differentiate into cells of different lineage. Which is found in multicellular organisms. Stem cells manly divide into two broad category, embryonic stem cells, which are isolated from the inner cell mass of blastocysts, and second is adult stem cells, which are found in several tissues. In adult animals, stem cells and precursor cells act as a repair system for the…

Introduction Man is the most evolved animal on earth and thus could be considered as the fittest living being nature has ever produced. Using the vast knowledge that nature has endowed him with, man has further shored his own defenses by an impressive range of weaponry. Yet, sadly all his ammunitions fails when it comes to defending his own body against the multitude of invisible, microscopic, disease causing organisms and molecules that surrounds him (Phondke, 1992). We are floating in an ocean of enemies of cunning microbes along with some deadly other factors such as automobile exhaust, radiation, cigarette smoke,…

Introduction From the very beginning of Science career, we are made of aware of IIT-JEE and Medical entrance exams (now NEET), and several among us get admission in coaching classes, even fromClass V/ VII; so we see people get really serious when career is concerned. And the moment we think of coaching classes, a city called Kota in Rajasthan comes to our mind. It has become a hub for producing future Engineers and Doctors. This development led to the development of Kota, generating employment/self-employment to thousands of people through shops, restaurants, hostels, etc. by Piyush Kumar, PhD
