Cell culture
Cell culture is the process by which cells are grown under controlled conditions, generally outside of their natural environment. In practice, the term "cell culture" now refers to the culturing of ce...

Measles Vaccination Saves You From More Than Measles
Here's another reason to get vaccinated against measles - researchers have found the measles virus makes kids' immune systems "forget" most of what they have learned, leaving children vulnerable to ot...
Passaging
In biology, a subculture is a new cell or microbiological culture made by transferring some or all cells from a previous culture to fresh growth medium. This action is called subculturing or passaging...
Transfection
Transfection is the process of deliberately introducing nucleic acids into cells. The term is often used for non-viral methods in eukaryotic cells. It may also refer to other methods and cell types, a...
Transformation (genetics)
In molecular biology, transformation is the genetic alteration of a cell resulting from the direct uptake and incorporation of exogenous genetic material (exogenous DNA) from its surroundings and take...
Hybridoma
Hybridoma technology is a technology of forming hybrid cell lines (called hybridomas) by fusing an antibody-producing B cell with a myeloma (B cell cancer) cell that is selected for its ability to gro...

Viral culture
Viral culture is a laboratory test in which samples are placed with a cell type that the virus being tested for is able to infect. If the cells show changes, known as cytopathic effects, then the cult...
Growth medium
A Growth Media or culture medium is a liquid or gel designed to support the growth of microorganisms or cells, or small plants like the moss Physcomitrella patens.There are different types of media fo...

Competence (biology)
In microbiology, genetics, cell biology, and molecular biology, competence is the ability of a cell to take up extracellular ("naked") DNA from its environment. Competence may be differentiated betwee...
HEK 293 cells
Human Embryonic Kidney 293 cells, also often referred to as HEK 293, HEK-293, 293 cells, or less precisely as HEK cells, are a specific cell line originally derived from human embryonic kidney cells (...

Synchronous culture
A synchronous or synchronized culture is a microbiological culture or a cell culture that contains cells that are all in the same growth stage.Since numerous factors influence the cell cycle, some of ...
JY cell line
The JY cell line is an Epstein–Barr virus (EBV)-immortalised B cell lymphoblastoid line. Cells express HLA class-I A2 and class-II DR. It is a suspension cell line, although cells are known to grow in...
Axenic
In biology, axenic describes the state of a culture in which only a single species, variety, or strain of organism is present and entirely free of all other contaminating organisms. The earliest axeni...
