Searching for genes involved in neurodegeneration, by Rebecca E

By in2scienceuk Uncategorized

The research my laboratory focused on was finding important proteins or eliminating genes that could affect neurodegeneration. One particular disease which is focused on is dentatorubral-pallidoluysian atrophy  (DRPLA). The mating scheme diagram you can see in the image below is a hypothetical one created as a practice for designing ones in the lab. My supervisor Catarina regularly designed the mating schemes for […]
