SWBIC

Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) can stay detectable in the body for days or even weeks following use. THC is absorbed and retained by many human tissues and organs after marijuana ingestion. The liver is the organ that breaks down the medication the most. The by-products of the breakdown are excreted in the urine almost immediately. THC retained in body tissue, on the other hand, is constantly released back into the bloodstream over time, where it is broken down by the liver and excreted in urine until the body is completely exhausted. THC elimination through urine is lower in chronic users, therefore it builds up in the liver.

We’ve changed our name! The National Biotechnology Information Facility (NBIF) is now the Southwest Biotechnology and Informatics Center (SWBIC). Please note that our URL https://www.nbif.org/ haschanged to https://www.nbif.org/. SWBIC will continue to provide allof the NBIF resources and services, but be expanded to support research and education in biotechnology at New Mexico State University and the local region. As before, the site is divided into three main sections:

 

The Educational Resources section includes workshops, on-line courses, educational classroom resources, and the games Outbreak!©, Origin: Unknown©, and iDNAfication©.

 

 

The Internet Resources section consists of an easily navigable and searchable database of more than 4000 annotated links to various internet sites with bioinformatics tools, research information, educational resources, careers, industry information, and much more.

 

 

The Products and Services section includes bioinformatics databases and tools, clip art, and the SWBIC Industry Register.
