Mitral Valve Prolapse: Benign Syndrome?

Sharon Anderson explores Mitral Valve Prolapse, a syndrome that has questioned many for many years, and sheds mild on a illness that is affecting such a lot of and is addressed too little. the indications of the ailment will not be numerous from these of alternative diseases: palpitations, fainting, fatigue, shortness of breath, migraine complications, chest ache, episodes of super speedy or abnormal heartbeat, dizziness and lightheadedness.

LAWS, LANGUAGE and LIFE: Howard Pattee’s classic papers on the physics of symbols with contemporary commentary

Howard Pattee is a physicist who for a few years has taken his personal direction in learning the physics of symbols, that is now a beginning for biosemiotics. through extending von Neumann’s logical standards for self-replication, to the actual specifications of symbolic guideline on the molecular point, he concludes kind of quantum size is critical for all times.

Animal Cell Culture

​Animal cells are the popular “cell factories” for the construction of advanced molecules and antibodies to be used as prophylactics, therapeutics or diagnostics. Animal cells are required for the proper post-translational processing (including glycosylation) of biopharmaceutical protein items. they're used for the creation of viral vectors for gene remedy.
