Biomarkers development for early detection of cancer: Reducing the burden of cancer in the ageing society

diseases. Indeed, in recent years the development and validation of novel biomarkers has been a key aspect in new biotechnology products. Tumour biomarkers may aid in early cancer detection and risk assessment; however, due to cancer heterogeneity, no single marker has shown to be fully satisfactory in terms of sensibility and specificity to be used for screening programs. Developing more accurate biomarkers and combining non overlapping biomarkers through dedicated algorithms to improve sensitivity and specificity for cost-effective clinical uses may represent a route

Can biotechnology contribute to the development of research and innovation smart specialization strategy (RIS3) in Central and East European countries? Reminiscences from the European Workshop

in the field of Biotechnology from through Europe. The Workshop was focused on the survey and evaluation of current state and prospects of development of research and innovation areas included within Research and Innovation Smart Specialization Strategy (RIS3) in many European countries with particular focus on the Biotechnology and on regional cooperation of CEE countries. The overall objective of the Workshop was to further promote Research and Innovation with the attention to CEE countries in the field of Biotechnology ranging from industrial biotechnology

Future Biotechnology

Introduction The field of biotechnology is large and could be considered tritely as simply the development of technology that is based on biology. For example, the long history of utilizing the biological processes of microorganisms to produce bread or cheese. Nonetheless, modern biotechnology provides breakthrough products and technologies to fight debilitating and rare diseases, to reduce people’s environmental footprint, to provide solutions for enhancing the world’s food supply; to use less and cleaner sources of energy, and to have safer, cleaner and

Nanobiotechnology medical applications: Overcoming challenges through innovation

additions to the NT revolution will aid in the development of products with the following properties: non-toxic, biodegradable, biocompatible, scalable, smart or programmable, eco-friendly, low energy consuming, and highly efficient ( 4 , 5 ). Therefore, the future of NT has the potential to generate outstanding medical care, extremely powerful computational power, stronger and more durable machinery, eco-friendly cities, and an increase in the access to clean water and food ( 3 , 4 )( 6 , 7 , 8 ). One of the most prominent subclasses of NT is Biomedical NT (BNT

Genetic bases of tomatо marker-assisted selection in Belarus

tomato breeding. In classical breeding, the forms with a varied fruit coloration are used in the development of varieties and hybrids with the accumulation of various carotenoids. However, the phenotypic assessment of the breeding material by the fruit color is insufficient in the selection of targeted forms (forms of interest) since it is impossible to differentiate a number of accumulated carotenoids with different biological values. This makes it possible to apply DNA-typing methods for the breeding material. The use of marker-assisted selection is very

Genetic testing for pulmonary stenosis

Genetic testing for pulmonary stenosis (Other synonyms: Pulmonic stenosis, pulmonary valve stenosis) General information about the disease Pulmonary stenosis (PS) is a congenital pulmonary valve malformation. Typical PS consists of a dome-shaped fusion of pulmonary semilunar valves, with poststenotic dilation of the main pulmonary artery, which is a common form of right ventricular outflow tract obstruction ( 1 ). Isolated PS is considered to be a rare congenital abnormality ( 2 ). PS is associated with the development of massive pulmonary arterial (PA

Evolution of phytochemical and antioxidant activity of Tunisian carob (Ceratonia siliqua L.) pods during maturation

ripening stages, harvested from different Tunisian regions were shown in Table 4 . The results revealed that the geographical origin and ripening stages affects sugars yield in quantitative term but not in qualitative one. Indeed, the main sugars identified and quantified in carob pods during pods development, were sucrose, fructose and glucose. In addition, throughout maturity this variation was expressed by a slight reduction of fructose and glucose content and an Table 4 Sugars profile of carob pods provenances influenced by ripening process Carbohydrates
