Yale Splash is a teaching plaform where students, professors and researchers from Yale Unversity and other institutions lecture about various topics. I got to learn about regenerative medicine and neuroscience, among others. Read on for my notes on this wonderful event.
Insects, from time immemorial, have been a boon and bane for humanity. While some insects are needed for pollination, many insects have spread diseases in humans, plants and animals. By using CRISPR gene editing technique to alter insect genes and using the insects’ natural desire to propagate, dangerous insect populations can be controlled.
Cheese is a staple food in many cultures. There are a wide variety of cheese, made using different ingredients and techniques. CRISPR technique has been used to improve the quality of the cheese.
I came across this interesting article about how scientists were able to trace the closest living relatives of the scary Tyrannosaurus Rex dinosaur to a common species that usually ends up on our dinner plate using some online tools and some DNA detective work!

These are some of notes as I read and study about the underlying biochemical interactions associated with genetics and living organisms including atom, molecules and interactions between them that are used in biochemical reactions.
Cómo comencé a estudiar sobre genética después de comenzar a buscar la cura de un tipo de cáncer que afectaba a mi abuela.
I found this interesting article from the United States Government Accountability Office blog about using CRISPR gene editing techniques to create new fast diagnostics test kits for identifying COVID-19 viruses.
What does National DNA day commemorate you may ask? Well, it is basically the day scientists and fellow biology enthusiasts get together to celebrate the discovery of DNA (instructions for how living things will look and function) and the revolutionary people who helped make its discovery.
