Professor Ahmed Zewail, President of the L’Oréal-UNESCO For Women in Science Awards Jury, today View all announced the five Laureates of the 2011 programme. Each year, five outstanding women scientists – one per continent – are honoured for the contributions of their research, the strength of their commitments and their impact on society. With the Marie Curie Nobel Centenary being celebrated in 2011, this year the For Women in Science Programme has a particularly strong resonance, placing women and chemistry at Most popular the heart of science today...

This process is called RNA interference (RNAi). The discovery of siRNAs and miRNAs has changed scientists’ views about cellular gene regulation, how diseases develop and even how the process of evolution operates... by period by author Read More 1 Comment Trackback (0) Follow the article I like 8 people like Tags 2004 2005 2006 2007 2008 2009 2010 SCIENCE FOR A BETTER FUTURE Africa AIDS Arab States 16/09/2010 by L'Oreal Foundation Same Author (50) Asia-Pacific biodiversity bioethics biotechnology career children Working in Africa for Africa… developing countries DNA

In the early stage education energy ethics of his career, he was appointed to teaching and research positions at Harvard Medical Europe fellows female scientist School, but he chose to return to Kenya in 1981.

The arabinogalactan-protein is a protein that belongs to the family of glycoproteins which means proteins that carry molecules of glucose. In this case it is a molecule of Arabinose and Galactose. This group of protein exists in all plants cells surfaces and steps in their growth, development, differenciation, death of cells, and especially in somatic embryogenesis. Many labs are dropping this subject because it is too complicated but I would like to understand the way this molecules acts.

The cloned plant is the identical reproduction of a plant. For certain plants the best adapted method of cloning is somatic embryogenesis, which is the development of embryos from parts harvested from the plant. Somatic embryogenesis represents a great advantage : thanks to this method of cloning we obtain a huge number of plants in a short time. The selector needs samples for crossing the plant : as the plant is allogamic …  it is necessary to get many different plants. The richer the Read More

Quantitative proteomics is a field of science, which can be defined as the study of global changes in the expression level of proteins and has witnessed an enormous development in the last years. The genes and protein are changing because of the environmental or physiological conditions. The research consists in extracting two or more protein from altered tissues, as cells or body fluids, in order to determine the presence of proteins suffering an alteration in their expression levels.
