MALDI-TOF mass spectrometry of base-specifically cleaved nucleic acids is a valuable expansion of the method portfolio in the field of comparative genomics, and opens new routes for diagnostic sequencing applications. MALDI-TOF MS combines the determination of an analyte-specific physical property—the molecular mass—with speed of signal acquisition and high accuracy. This results in a high degree of automation and throughput. The inherent redundancy of observations supporting the discovery of sequence changes is up to five times higher compared to sequencing. This feature should propel MALDI-TOF MS as a gold standard in the fields of SNP discovery, mutation detection, pathogen identification, methylation detection, haplotyping, and cDNA characterization.

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.
