  • Author Photo Reverse Genetics: From Genotype to Phenotype    By: Helen Baby Thomas

    The development of whole genome sequencing has enabled many researchers to have access to all of the gene sequences within a given organism and their function. So, instead of going from phenotype to sequence as in forward genetics, reverse genetics works in the opposite direction - a gene sequence is known, but its exact function is uncertain. In reverse genetics, a specific gene or gene product is disrupted or modified and then the phenotype is measured. >> Category: Biotech Research

Article: Toxic Fibers and Fabrics - Comment by: Daoloth - 2017-06-13

I saw a comment trying to defend polyester... Which I can attest to personal experience of having a dog eat the fabric of that causing to need an operation to remove from stomach... It seems dogs can only break down natural fibers like cotton etc... Not able to digest or break down synthetic fibers like Rayon, Polyester, things of that nature so be very wary. Those sheets you buy that are 50/50 cotton/polyester blend might end up costing a life or lead to a very high vet bill.. I wear many t-shirts, the rayon ones or synthetic fake cotton tend to cause me issues itching or feeling like heating up among breaking out in rashes etc. So while I"ll wear polyester or blended t-shirts to stay cooler in the summer that isn't a material I would advice... Hemp can be expensive especially if that is organic or cotton though... A reason cotton went up in price was the weather in the regions it comes from... So over the last few years or longer they started to substitute rayon, polyester or other cheap even dangerous materials that are not made from natural fibers or sources... Hence they can't be broken down in many cases whether its in the stomach of the dog or bacteria etc... So this will lead to issues with water supply or earth/food animals and crops. I wish I knew all this sooner before finding out the hard way. Be careful if get dogs rope bones they tend to eat the strands so make sure its some sorta natural fiber/source not synthetic like polyester etc...

What a wonderfully precise & concise explanation of sewage bacteria.
Thank you. Interested on your ideas on the possible impacts/effects if the sewer mains were flooded with ultraviolet light?

Ultimately I'm looking for a "self cleaning" sewer main solution so your ideas on that too would be appreciated.
