Cancer testing Cancer testing Hello, I am doing a project about cancer, using a compound (my partner doesn't want me to say it) that is normally used intravenously. I was wondering how we could test this on cancer cells and where we could get these cancer cells from. Re: Cancer testing Hi, Welcome to Science Buddies! This sounds like a great project. The best way to test a novel compound to see if it effective against cancer cells would be with cells grown in tissue culture http Read more

Plant cancer Plant cancer Hi! My name is Tony and I am currently working on a science fair project with my partner. It is about finding a possible preventive anti-carcinogen for plant cancer caused by the Agrobacterium Tumefaciens bacteria (crown gall). I will first expose healthy bean plants to an anti-carcinogen extract (turmeric, oregano, and Vitamin C) and then give it the cancer. I will see the percent of plants that get prevented from the cancer. However, I have some questions about my Read more

Cancer Bio-informatics project Cancer Bio-informatics project Hello to all, I am conducting a bio-informatics project relating to image processing of cancer. Does anyone know where I can find a comprehensive database of sample pictures? Aside from National Cancer Institute, I was wondering if I missed any popular source of these images. Thank you very much, Eric Jang Re: Cancer Bio-informatics project Hi Eric, This is not my area of expertise, but here are a couple online sources of Read more

Cancer Genome Anatomy Project Cancer Genome Anatomy Project Hi, I am doing the Cancer Genome Anatomy Project. I wanted to know what am I really able to test with SAGE Genie. Which questions regarding genes can be answered using SAGE Genie? Re: Cancer Genome Anatomy Project Hi Science1234, Would you be able to provide more background on your project. The SAGE Genie is not a test. It is a software tool used to study gene expression (or how and when genes are turned into proteins). Re Read more

Detecting Cancer Cells Detecting Cancer Cells Hello everyone! My partner and I saw an article about a dog having the ability to detect cancer. We want to find out whether the cancer cells are giving out a specific scent that only dogs can smell, or is it only a few certain dogs that have the ability to do so. We are planning to experiment on this by growing our own cancer cells and have a few different dogs smell them and see if there is any reactions compare to normal cells. Is this a Read more

Cancer Genome Anatomy Project Re: Cancer Genome Anatomy Project Questions Hello Emily, There is a ton of data around cancer research on the internet. I would suggest going a search for the gene you are interested in and see what comes up. You can also find out more information about oncogenes if you search wikipedia. I don't know when the NIH will get back to you so it might be good to have a back up plan in case they don't respond to you in time. Hope this helps get you started Read more

Cancer Project Idea Cancer Project Idea Hi Everybody, I would like to design and complete a cancer research project. I've already looked at the Science Buddies experiments and various science fair projects from before. Does anybody have any ideas? In the past, I have tested various chemicals on cancer cells in vitro. This year, I am also interested in gene expression. Thanks! Researcher3 Re: Cancer Project Idea Hi, It's very good that you are starting early on your project! Since you Read more

pH and Cancer pH and Cancer Can having an acidic pH lead to cancer? What effect does acidic pH have on cancer? Re: pH and Cancer Hi Joselle, I am not completely sure if pH differences have an effect on cancer. Let me tell you a little about pH in the body, for background. The body is separated into different organ systems, based on their function. The pH of the stomach is much lower than the pH in other parts of the body. Generally in the body the pH remains near 7 (in order for Read more

Cancer Genome Anatomy Project Cancer Genome Anatomy Project Hello. I decided to do this project and i found it confusing, I really dont get the basic concept from it . Can someone please give me a quick summary on what the project is dealing with. Can someone answer what is an over-expressed gene and what is an under-expressed gene? How should i start my project? I have this hypothesis but dont know how to start it goes like this; Is there a difference in gene expression of certain genes Read more

Cancer Genome Anatomy Project Cancer Genome Anatomy Project Hello. I need help on the topic Cancer Genome Anatomy Project i have looked at the links but found it sort of confusing can any bascially summarize it for me such as, what is the difference between an over-expressed gene and under-expressed gene ? My problem im trying to research is, Is there a difference in gene expression of certain genes between cancer and normal tissue ? Can anyone reply ASAP thank you Re: Cancer Genome Anatomy Read more
