[Gene of the Week] Alzheimer's Disease and Genes - PSEN1 (Presenilin 1)
Alzheimer's disease (AD) is the most common age-related neurodegenerative disorder, which affects 20 to 30 million individuals worldwide. Currently, no effective therapies to treat or cure this disease have been developed. In this review, we discuss the current research and understanding of the PSEN1 gene and its mutation which causes familial Alzheimer's disease (FAD). Read More ›

[Gene of the Week] Alzheimer's Disease and Genes - APP (Amyloid Precursor Protein)
It is well known that genes play a major role in many human diseases - for this reason they are an important research topic in the field of life science and medicine. How can the public quickly grasp the recent research on disease-related genes, when the only resources out about them are long complex academic journals? Read More ›
Exclusive Webinar: Introduction to Genetically Engineered Rodent Models
Animal modeling has a played a prominent role in traditional scientific research for hundreds of years. More recently, inbred strains have been developed to support genetically modified models – sometimes called the “living reagents” or “living instruments” of biomedical and health research.

Introduction to the Cre-Lox Recombination System
With the advantages of simple operation and high recombination rate, the Cre-Lox system has now become a powerful tool for genetic manipulation across in vivo and in vitro. The Cre-Lox system enables gene expression with exceptional spatial (expresses a gene in specific cells, tissues, or entire organisms) and temporal (at specific time points through the application of the Cre-Lox system) control.
