• Evolution of genome sequencing techniques 

      Henao Mejía, Luisa Maria; Goebel Vázquez, Cristina (2016-06-07)
      The quality and the speed for genome sequencing has advanced at the same time that technology boundaries are stretched. This advancement has been divided so far in three generations. The first-generation methods ...
    • Selected Reaction Monitoring (SRM) frente a Western Blot 

      Heredia Ponce, Zahira Maria; Urbano Gámez, Jose Alberto (2016-06-07)
      We propose the SRM technology as a complementary method to the Western Blot for the detection and quantification of proteins in a sample. The technique Western Blot has its own limitations: i) only a protein-of-choice is ...
    • Phylogenetic inference's algorithms 

      Fernández Rovira, Alicia; Gómez Jáuregui, Alvaro (2016-06-07)
      Phylogenetic inference consist in the search of an evolutionary tree to explain the best way possible genealogical relationships of a set of species. Phylogenetic analysis has a large number of applications in areas such ...
    • Quantum Dots 

      Pimentel Naranjo, Victor; Galeote Checa, Gabriel (2016-06-07)
      The purpose of this communication is to make a bibliographic review of Quantum Dots methods and their applications in the field of Biotechnology. Quantum dots (QDs) are a novel class of inorganic fluorophores, which are ...
    • Microarrays as a functional approach to the transcriptome 

      Barrionuevo Moreno, Ignacio; Del Espino Pérez, Ángel (2016-06-07)
      Knowing a cell’s transcriptome is a fundamental requisite in order to analyze its response to the environment. Microarrays have supposed a revolution on this field as they are able to yield an overview of gene expression ...
    • Hibridación in situ fluorescente (FISH) 

      Aguilar, Ruben; Montoro, Carolina (2016-06-07)
      Background: At the end of 80s, cloning technologies with the increase of the antibodies’ sensibility made easier the development of technologies based on Fluorescence in situ Hibridation (FISH). Nowadays, It’s widely used ...
    • Multi-­‐dimensional Protein Identification Technology 

      Berri-Trapero, Yumana; Villar-Moreno, Rafael (2016-06-07)
      Before the rise of the Multidimentional Protein Identification Technology (MudPIT), protein and peptide mixtures were resolved using traditional proteomic technologies like the gel-­‐ based 2D chromatography that separates ...
    • NGS y Metagenómica 

      Cabrera-Mulero, Amanda; Alba-Bernal, Alfonso (2016-06-07)
      The Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) allows to sequence the whole genome of an organism, compared to Maxam and Gilbert and Sanger sequencing that only allow to sequence, hardly, a single gene. Removing the separation of ...
    • Tecnología Nanopore para la secuenciación de DNA 

      Carrera, David; Gémez, Juan (2016-06-07)
      Nanopore-based sequencer will open the path to the fourth-generation DNA sequencing technology. The main differences between this technique and the previous ones are: DNA molecule that will be sequenced does not need a ...
