Haiyoh!!!! Lost my love!

Feeling low, Feeling uninteresting! I started hating you! Is it me??! Is it myself who hate you? 
I loved you these many months, I hugged you tight in my bed when I sleep. How great our days were, when we were together! :( :( But now! I hate you. It's because of , It's all because of me. 

Wondering?! What happened to my love? Mm., as usual., I didn't mention about love between a boy and a girl, but, love between my microbio and me. ( Don't get tensed, I love my subjects that much :P seriously, I love them much) 

"Favorite, lovely, interesting... ", the words which i often used to describe my microbio paper! Now, it became,  "boring, uninteresting, .."  :( :( It's too good to read and experiment with microbe's morphology and metabolisms. But, this classifications....!!!!

 Oh my god, this is too lengthy, even the infinite list of castes in India could be memorized, but not this classification chart! I love reading, but, not memorizing! :( :( 

If the paper is with lots of concepts, mechanisms, procedures and metabolisms... I could easily read and understand, but, this microbio mam, now started teaching, classifications of algae, fungi, bacteria... OW.... "I'm really paavam!" (Self-pitying) :(  

The list is too long, algae has a classification, fungi has a classification, in that subclasses... :( ow.. it's too hard to remember these scientific names. A glance or refreshing before the day of exam would never work out this time, must read daily. Must remember the Binomial nomenclature :(  Loosing my interest :(  

I don't like myself , chating in class hours., I listen to all the lectures, very keen (especially, microbio, my favorite :P don't come here to my home to beat me for i talk about subjects all the time :P ) but, I did chat today :( :P (okay this is too much i feel, chatting in class is not that sad thing)

All is well! Loosing interest. Have to get focused, have to regain the spirit of learning. But, memorizing.. :( I can't, "it is the toughest job in the world to remember the names and classification" I feel. 

And, this may also be due to my weakness " I easily forget names" , even the names of persons. It makes lots of troubles with my friendship" :( :(  I often come up with this question when a meet a person after a gap, "Sorry, what's your name?" :(:( I know, how bad it is, but, i'm unable to remember the names. 

I tried a lot to avoid this, but, none worked well. The tricks i tried which failed : 
1) I use to repeat  the names twice or thrice when i ask for the name of a person for the first time.
2) I use to apologise even before asking a new person's name, I say, "Sorry, I may ask you, your name,once again in the future, i forget names :( sorry, may i know your name please?" 

This is too bad, I know, but, don't know why, I have this peculiar weakness.

The lengthy conversations which I made with a person a long back, would be in my mind, but, the name of that person alone, troubles me a lot! I forget names alone! Could call this as name-O-phobia? :( :( 

Please? suggest me a technique to remember names?? 
Have a great time. Keep smiling. 


  1. I have trouble remembering names too.
    Here's a tip (and this is a little mean): I try to associate the name with an obvious character/physical feature or flaw.

    So Joe would be "Fat Joe" or Mary would be "Hairy Mary". Good luck!

  2. Thank you so much :) :) I'l try this technique :)

Genotyping, Phenotyping, Karyotyping!

We are going to discuss here about three different typing! They are genotyping, phenotyping and karyotyping. Before learning about them let us learn what is genotype, phenotype and karyotype!

Genotype refers to the genetic make up of an organism. Generally the genes of an organism. The genotype of an organism can be represented as BB or Bb or bb based on the gene. If a person is having two recessive CFTR genes, then he will be getting cytic fibrosis. Genotype of an organism has also effect over the phenotype. Thus, genotype is representing the alleles of a gene in general. Genotyping is generally done based on PCR or hybridization.

Phenotype refers to the visible characters like structure, color and also the biochemical characters. This is based on the phenotype. Phenotyping can be done using biochemical assays.

Karyotype refers to the number of structure of chromosomes in an organism. karyotyping is done by staining and visualising the cells under microscope.

Isolation of monocytes from PBMC (Peripheral Blood Mononuclear Cells) - Principle and protocol

Whenever I'm made to realise that I'm not clear enough or good at something, I try to make myself clear with it. It happened today, during my laboratory examination, I was asked to perform monocyte isolation from a given blood sample, but, unfortunately, I was not very clear with the principle behind it.(but, still I managed to complete the experiment as I know the protocol, but, knowing the principle behind each step of the protocol clearly is very important, isn't it?). But, nothing is wrong in it, I made myself clear with it now. That's good, right?

So, let me share with you some basic principle and protocol for isolating monocyte from blood sample.

For isolating monocytes, initially we must isolate PBMC (Peripheral bood mono nuclear cells) from the blood sample. Here, let us make few terminologies clear before starting with the principle.

Peripheral blood sample - It is the blood sample obtained from acral areas of body (in general, it is the blood collected from ha…

Extraction of Plasmid DNA - Principle behind usage of various reagents

Have a good time :) Last time I had explained you the procedure for "electroporation" and now with those electroporated cells, you can extract the plasmid DNA.

I'm not going to share the exact protocol here, but the mechanism behind the protocol we use in our lab.

Generally, the following reagents are used for the extraction of plasmid DNA.,
1) STET buffer
4)Phenol chloroform
5) Alcohol
6) Sodium acetate

If you need the protocol, kindly mail me I'll send you the  protocol. Now, let us discuss the principle behind the usage of each of these reagents.

STET buffer - contains Sucrose which helps in maintaining osmotic pressure; Triton X which helps in cleaving the cell wall; EDTA which acts as a chelating agent; Tris HCl is used as buffer.

Lysozyme - cleaves the cell membrane and wall;

RNAase- As  the name indicates, it cleaves RNA

Phenol chloroform (buffer saturated- pH 8) - Phenol denatures proteins, Chloroform prevents oxidised phenol from bind…
