College of medicine holds a workshop on the importance of polymerization and its theoretical and practical applications


The unit of continuing medical education at the college of medicine, university of Baghdad, held a workshop entitled “sequential interaction of polymerization: from theoretical to practical application” sponsored by the president of the university of Baghdad, prof. Dr. Alaa Abdul Hussein and the supervision of dean of the college, prof. Dr. Zaid Abdul Majeed al-Medfai. The president of university delivered a speech at the opening of the workshop in which he praised the role of the college of medicine in supplying health institutions, scientific and educational bodies with whatever new and sophisticated in medical and health fields, reviewing the history of the college and its scientific contributions in the graduation of the best Iraqi doctors who lead health institutions inside and outside Iraq and praising their medical sober experience and reputation all over the world. The lectures included defining modern methods frequently used in molecular biology where the word “polymerization” is derived from (DNA polymerase) which is used to generate many copies from a piece of DNA through enzymatic reincarnation outside organisms. when the interaction develops, the manufactured DNA is being used as a template for reincarnation, thus activating the sequential interaction that results in exponential enlargement of DNA template. Through this interaction, millions of copies of a single piece of DNA can be generated in addition to modifying the sequential interaction of polymerization to create many hereditary versions. Studies deal with the use of all applications of DNA polymerization interaction that is stable thermally such as “taq polymerase” which is an enzyme isolated from bacteria that are hydraulically induced that works on gathering a new DNA fiber from nucleotides (DNA formation cubes) as a template to manufacture of DNA. Most methods of sequential reaction of polymerization are using thermal recycling for heating and cooling the sample. This technology was developed in 1983 by Carrie Mullis, used in medical and biological research laboratories such as duplication of DNA relying on functional analysis of genes, diagnosis of genetic diseases, identifying DNA used in forensic sciences and paternity testing, detection and diagnosis of infectious diseases. Also exhibitions of medical supplies were held on this subject with the participation of “scientific progress co.” and “Al-Musayyib bridge co.” The workshop was attended by a large number of faculty members at the college and specialists in this field from relevant government departments and private companies to supply college students of primary and graduate studies with scientific equipment.
