In the medicine field gene therapy (also called human gene transfer) is the therapeutic delivery of nucleic acid into a patients cells as a drug to treat disease.Horizontal gene transfer is typically inferred using bioinformatics methods either by identifying atypical sequence signatures (parametric methods) or by identifying strong discrepancies between the evolutionary history of particular sequences compared to that of their hosts.Gene Therapy Net is the web resource for patients and professionals interested in gene therapy. The objectives of Gene Therapy Net are to be the information resource for basic and clinical research in gene therapy cell therapy and genetic vaccines and to serve as a network in the exchange of info

Gene Therapy What is Gene Therapy Certain diseases are caused by faulty genes which produce defective proteins. The symptoms of genetic disease are the result of subsequent disrupted vital cell processes caused by missing or defective proteins.NTCs mammalian expression vectors for enhanced recombinant protein expression and superior genetic immunization.Adeno-associated (AAV) guide to components serotypes and safe use in the lab.
