Recent advances in molecular techniques adapted for Mycobacterial genetics have furthered our understanding of the organism. The Journal Mycobacterial genetics helps in providing the knowledge related to genes and its roles in a human as well as in a animal body. It forms the base for the heridity. And the actual process that is invoved in the gene transfer form one generation to another generation is recombination. This unit is dedicated to common molecular tools in bacterial research specifically tailored for Mycobacterial genetics. These include colony PCR, DNA isolation, and RNA isolation. The unit also reviews techniques for genetic manipulation, such as the use of plasmids, natural transformation, electroporation, conjugation, and transposition.
The vocabulary used in academic journals is very simple & there is no bibliography. It is looked upto as one of the marketing tools, hence there are lot of advertisements with jargons & glossy images posted which are attractive & interesting. There have been instances where few of these academic journals are compromised & creativity has been given an upper hand.
