While this is still the most important aspect of bioinformatics, it is increasingly applied to other fields of biology, including molecular and other aspects of toxicology. It is characterized by computationally intensive methodology and includes the design of large databases and the development of techniques for their manipulation, including data mining. 8 27 SUMMARY AND CONCLUSIONS Rapid and dramatic progress in development of new techniques based on molecular biology and analytical chemistry are stimulating new approaches and progress in many fields of toxicology.
Replacing the Northern technique described above as the preferred technique to measure changes in gene expression and the mRNA level. Gene function in cultured cells can be investigated by the forced expression of the gene product in a suitable expression system or through the use of small interfering RNAs (siRNAs), where the expression of the gene of interest can be knocked down in cultured cells. , serine is replaced by alanine to study the role of posttranslational modifications involving phosphorylation) is expressed in place of the wild-type gene.
