College Reopening!


This is for my Cute, chweet Friends :)

The first day of month! The month in which I was born. My birthday is coming :) A special thing about this month is, I'm gonna celebrate my birthday after 7 years! That too with friends in hostel! :)

College is reopening tomorrow!  I was a day scholar for the past two years! Now, gonna join in hostel :)
I'm happy about it! Kanmani is in third year of technical education now, Kanmani (biotechnology) 3rd year :)

I'm very much exited in getting back to college tomorrow!

Tomorrow is very special!
Why because,
* The first day of third year!
* College got a new principal , I don't know, whether this change of principal will bring out :) or :( or :'(
But, for now :D
* Classes start only by 11 a.m :)  till 11 :D fun with friends :)
* From this year, we don't have Mathematics :) :D
* From this year, Our HOD is taking gonna take care of us :) He is gonna come for Molecular Biology.
In the 3rd sem, Cell biology was my favorite, then 4th semester - Microbiology, And now, in this sem, it will be Molecular Biology :) :) :)
* I'm gonna join in Hostel this year! :)
But, the sadder part of joining hostel is Mobile phone is not allowed, Facebook & Twitter are blocked :( 
To my goodness, they didn't block Blogs and Indiblogger :)

Results for the previous sem is not out still :( I'm very much worried about it.

A final note to my class mates:
Get to know something about Molecular biology, because, HOD sir may ask us tomorrow, "What is molecular Biology?"
Here you read something:
Molecular Biology deals at molecular level of cellular activities. We will learn about, Proteins, DNA, Blotting,  PCR, Arrays etc., I believe. You can find all this in Wikipedia :P

Blotting: It's searching for a specific sequence in DNA sample.
PCR: PCR allows a single DNA sequence to be copied (millions of times), or altered in predetermined ways.
Arrays: A DNA array is a collection of spots attached to a solid support such as a microscope slide where each spot contains one or more single-stranded DNA oligonucleotide fragment

So, if we read something, we can answer him better. We need not "Sodhappify"( go wrong) the first day itself :P.
All the best :)

The conclusion of this post is "Nothing" I'm leaving to College with full smile on duty!
Wish you, A HAPPY JULY!
Tata :) :)


  1. Enjoy the fun the days of college. Exciting days ahead for you! Good luck for the forthcoming years ahead :)

  2. Dear kanmani,
    Wishing you all success in your 3rd year and life full of fun and happiness!
    Convey my wishes to your friends also!

    1. Thank you ma. Sure, I'l convey. Thanks for your blessings.

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…
