Using CRISPR Cas9 to treat Cancer

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Biology, Biomedical Science, Technology

Abstract This article will explore the use of CRISPR Cas9 technology to create models of tumors to improve understanding of which genes are responsible for tumor initiation and progression, and to develop therapies that target those genes. There are already different types of immunotherapies, such as engineered TCR therapy and CAR T cell therapy, which […]

A 3D Cellular Automata Cancer Stem Cell Model using MATLAB and App Designer

Posted 1 CommentPosted in Biology

Abstract This is a flexible and user-friendly 3D cellular automata model that uses MathWorks’ MATLAB and App Designer to simulate cancer tumor growth that takes into account certain types of Cancer Stem Cell (CSC) behavior. A Cellular Automata model, or a grid containing cells with rules governing their current state, is ideal for MATLAB (Matrix […]

Aerobic Respiration and Anticancer Treatment

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Biology, Chemistry

Abstract This article is an overview of aerobic cellular respiration and how the process can be influenced by glycolytic inhibitors as a potential cancer treatment.In the presence of oxygen, glucose undergoes a series of reactions characterised by the overall term “aerobic respiration” in order to synthesise ATP, which is crucial to muscle contraction and movement. […]
