Methods and Tools

In this section you will find information about the techniques scientists use to study gene and cell biology and investigate potential therapies.

These techniques are the cornerstone of the field. They are used to investigate basic gene and cell biology, to understand how to change cell behaviour, and to create disease models used to understand both the progression and potential treatment of specific conditions.

Many methods which were initially developed as research tools have since become important therapeutic tools, as you may see in our Current and Potential Uses section.
