Sequencing a human genome at home
blog.booleanbiotech.com/human-genom… 

In this post I'll describe how to sequence a human genome at home, something that's only recently become possible. The protocol described here is not necessarily the best way to do this, but it's what has worked best for me. It costs a few thousand dollars in equipment to get started, but the (low-coverage) sequencing itself requires only $150, a couple of hours of work, and almost no lab skills.

The SARS-CoV-2 pandemic introduced the world to a new type of vaccine based on mRNA encapsulated in lipid nanoparticles (LNPs). Instead of delivering antigenic proteins directly, an mRNA-based vaccine relies on the host's cells to manufacture protein immunogens which, in turn, are targets for antibo …

How many new particles has the LHC discovered? The most widely known discovery is of course that of the Higgs boson. Less well known is the fact that, over the past 10 years, the LHC experiments have also found more than 50 new particles called hadrons. Coincidentally, the number 50 appears in the context of hadrons twice, as 2021 marks the 50th anniversary of hadron colliders: on 27 January 1971, two beams of protons collided for the first time in CERN’s Intersecting Storage Rings accelerator,…
