Body Of Text

There are several clinical applications of genomics-based technologies to S. pneumoniae. Genotypic tests may assist with the identification and typing of S. pneumoniae isolates cultured from clinical samples. Gene amplification methods have been developed to rapidly detect S. pneumoniae directly from clinical samples, thereby obviating the need to rely on culturing the organism. Detection of antimicrobial resistance genes can provide valuable clinical and epidemiological information. Recent publication of the complete genome sequence of S. pneumoniae has facilitated the use of genomics-based technology to identify important genes of this bacterium, including the identification of potential new targets for antimicrobial drugs. The clinical applications of proteo-mic technologies in medical microbiology are still being realized, although proteomics is likely to have a future role in the investigation of the epidemiology, taxonomy, and antimicrobial resistance of human pathogens.

Getting Started With Dumbbells

Getting Started With Dumbbells

The use of dumbbells gives you a much more comprehensive strengthening effect because the workout engages your stabilizer muscles, in addition to the muscle you may be pin-pointing. Without all of the belts and artificial stabilizers of a machine, you also engage your core muscles, which are your body's natural stabilizers.
