Quotes

"The lymphatic system produces B-lymphocytes and T-lymphocytes, disease-fighting white blood cells that travel through the blood in a fluid called lymph,” says Mona Rosenberg, D V M , a board-certified veterinary oncologist and founder of Veterinary Cancer Group, which has four locations in Southern California. "Lymphoma occurs when lymphocytes grow uncontrollably, forming tumors in the lymph nodes that can spread to the organs, tissues, and bone marrow.”"
"It's pretty difficult to analyze these modifications, which is a need that we're working on addressing. We're trying to make this analysis easier and cheaper, particularly in patient samples" says Hadley Sikes, the Joseph R Mares Assistant Professor of Chemical Engineering and the senior author of a paper describing the technique in the journal...
"When you get this pattern involving the pancreas, gall bladder and liver, it's difficult to think you'll have a good outcome" she said. I considered this the first honest thing anyone had said during the entire miserable affair
...the number, if any, of mismatches between the oligonucleotide and target sequence to which it is to hybridize (see, for example, Sambrook et al., "Molecular Cloning: A laboratory manual (Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Press 1989)). As such, the conditions used to achieve a particular level of stringency will vary, depending on the nature of the hybridizing nucleic acid molecules. An additional consideration is whether one of the nucleic acids is immobilized, for example, on a filter. An example of progressively higher stringency conditions is as follows: 2.times.SSC/0.1% SDS at about room temperature (hybridization conditions); 0.2.times.SSC/0.1% SDS at about room temperature (low stringency conditions); 0.2.times.SSC/0.1% SDS at about 42.degree. C (moderate stringency conditions); and 0.1.times.SSC at about 62.degree. C (high stringency conditions). Hybridization and/or washing can be carried out using only one of these conditions, for example, high stringency conditions, or each of the conditions can be used, for example, for 10 to 15 minutes each, in the order listed above, repeating any or all of the steps listed."
