The purpose was to evaluate the feasibility of using synthetic replicas for the identification of blood spots through the morphology of the red blood cells. In a broad sense, if replicas of organic waste can be made without damaging valuable originals, then they could be studied microscopically without removing the original pieces from museums or private collections. Silicone molds To achieve the replica, silicone molds were first made of the areas stained with blood, from which copies of polyurethane resin were obtained. Subsequently, the original samples and their corresponding resin replicas were examined with a scanning electron microscope. Finally, the results obtained in the two ways were compared. “It should be noted that, in all the samples studied, the ability of the replicas to

reproduce the morphology of the red blood Burkina Faso Email List cells in the blood stains was confirmed,” he says. A study in which the Biomedical Informatics Research Group ( GRIB ), a joint program of the UPF Department of Experimental and Health Sciences ( DCEXS ) and the Hospital del Mar Medical Research Institute ( IMIM ), the Centro of Lemurs Duke (United States) and Duke University (United States), studies for the first time the regulation of genes in hibernating primates. The primate they have studied is the thick-tailed dwarf lemur ( Cheirogaleus medius). It is an exceptional species and little studied, since it is the only primate capable of hibernating, subsisting on the lipids it has stored in its tail for the rest of the year. The work is also one of the few studies on hibernation that uses a modern technique called

RNAseq that allows us to see at a global level which genes are being expressed and to quantify them. They are the first genomic data that exist for this species. The work consisted of studying a total of 4 individuals living in the Duke Lemur Center. Tail adipose tissue samples have been taken at different times of the year, even when the animals were hibernating, and the RNAseq technique has been applied to find out which genes are involved in hibernation. Hibernation, despite the name, is not a response to cold, but a lack of resources. These lemurs hibernate in Madagascar, which is almost tropical and they do so during the dry season, because they cannot find food. The computational and data analysis part has been carried out at the GRIB by José Luis Villanueva-Cañas ,
