August Issue Published; Vol 5(4)

August issue of ALS is now published. This time, in our multidisciplinary reads, we have featured articles exploring different aspects of 3D Bioprinting for enhanced health care; How forensic matters can be assisted by examining residual light metals found in industry workers’ hairs; Assessing relation of Interleukin-37 with Rheumatoid Arthritis; Report on prevalence of Hepatitis C in pregnant women; Evaluating methanol extract of Moringa oleifera pods on rat liver; A new Rapid RNA Extraction protocol for tree samples; Production of endopolygalacturonase by a novel Bacillus licheniformis; A first hand survey on how rapid commercial conversion of land is badly effecting agriculture in Lahore region and from molecular sciences what are the underlying genetic differences in fast and slowing moving animals.
