Are you interested in basic #molecularbiology #research in #Europe, but lacking insights on the top institutes with a twitter presence? Search no more – this thread features a selection of Europe’s leading molecular biology hubs to follow. 👩‍🔬👨🏿‍🔬👩🏼‍🔬
The ‘mother of molecular biology institutes’ first, the #MRC Laboratory of Molecular Biology (usually called ‘The LMB’) in #Cambridge. Dubbed the #NobelPrize Factory, I consider it a ‘must-follow’ for any biologist on twitter. | @MRC_LMB
The European Molecular Biology Laboratory in #Heidelberg is associated with #EMBO. Alongside the LMB, ‘EMBL’ is the flagship of molecular biology research in Europe – and expanding, with branches in #Hinxton, #Monterotondo, #Grenoble, #Hamburg and #Barcelona. | @EMBL

After a jam-packed 2 days at #SciOut18🌪(thx @ASBMB & @rockedu_!) it was time to reflect! 🤔 Reflection is so important, but it can be hard to find ⏰ to really just think! 💭 Some of my thoughts 👉 instagram.com/p/BokNO_NhihF/

What’s inside? 🧐 It’s FORMAMIDE! 🤗 Formally removing RNA’s form with formamide! 🤓 FORMAMIDE in loading buffer breaks up & replaces the bonds between bases holding RNA's shape together 👇

Bring on the heat! 🔥 To help denaturants get to the huddling hydrophobic bases, we add heat ♨️ 👉 gives molecules more energy so they can “pull apart” more easily ⏩ easier access 👍 More 👇

Because I do believe that it's important to know the history of your field and inspired by @carlzimmer @matthewcobb & Michel Morange's books that contain some fantastic material for teaching, a thread with some #classicpaper in #molecularbiology #DNA
1⃣ 1944 Oswald Avery, Colin MacLeod & Maclyn McCarty - DNA, not protein as was commonly believed, is the hereditary material for bacteria, and the cause of bacterial transformation jem.rupress.org/content/79/2/1…
2⃣ 1947 André Boivin & Roger Vendrely - a near forgotten 2 pages in French that suggest almost explicitly that DNA --> RNA --> protein link.springer.com/article/10.100…
