Ribosomes and Ribosome Profiling

What Are Ribosomes? Ribosomes are one of the essential cell organelles, which play a critical part in the course of translating the genetic information reserved in the genome into protein products. Ribosomes are found in both prokaryotes and eukaryotes. They float freely in the cytosol of prokaryotic/eukaryotic cells or on the endoplasmic reticulum of eukaryotic […]

Amplicons and Amplicon Sequencing

Amplicons Definition In molecular biology, amplicons represent DNA or RNA fragments that are the source and/or product of amplification or replication events. They can be naturally formed through gene duplication. Natural gene duplication plays a crucial role in genomic evolution. In this context, an amplicon refers to a section of chromosomal DNA that has been […]
