Genetic Testing

Mutations in disease genes can be detected after gene amplification by polymerase chain reaction (PCR), followed by a mutation screening technique (single-strand conformation polymorphism, denaturing high-performance liquid chromatography, or others) and, finally, by sequencing. These techniques are highly specific if different conditions are analyzed and if the PCR primers largely surround the exons and important intronic sites. Sensitivity depends on several factors; particularly, one cannot exclude the implication of another as-yet identified gene and/or that PCR primers may hide a point mutation.

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.
