Specifically the study focuses on the feasibility of obtaining medical charts and biologic specimens for review, the assessment of an already established questionnaire in this study population, reliability and accuracy of the biologic assays
for studying specific genetic changes as well as a preliminary evaluation of ethnicity-related differences in the status of these genetic changes.
Through this previously announced collaboration, the Arizona Cancer Center is conducting biologic assays
to screen TRAP-generated compounds for pharmaceutical activity against cancer-related drug targets.
By using quantitative molecular and biologic assays
, we could estimate that, under our experimental conditions, 360 genomes are approximately required to form a plaque of infectivity in vitro.
First, the biologic assays
skewed the basis for comparison toward the modern drug discovery model because those assays screen mainly for illnesses faced by temperate-zone populations, and not for health problems such as malaria or tuberculosis that are far more common in the tropics where the plants grow.
Chromagen is a biotechnology company with a core fluorescent technology platform which is being used to develop ultrasensitive biologic assays
for drug discovery, research and clinical diagnostics.
