Assessing Genome Accessibility and the Impact on Microbial Factory Performance Using CRISPR-based Genome Editing Tool

Course: ChE 490/ Micro 490/Biol 499 Credits: 1-2 Instructor: Dr. Zengyi Shao Genomes serve as scaffolds for transmitting information through both genetic and epigenetic means. Eukaryotes face an information packaging challenge because DNA molecules of each chromosome need to be folded within a tiny space in the nuclei. Accumulating evidence demonstrates that the spatial arrangement of the … Continue reading Assessing Genome Accessibility and the Impact on Microbial Factory Performance Using CRISPR-based Genome Editing Tool

Physics Research

Course: PHYS 199 Credits: 1 Instructor: Dr. Alex Travesset In this Physics majors orientation course, students select research projects that faculty have proposed ranging from Planet Hunters, to quantum nuclear physics calculations, to ultrafast optics. This course is a great stepping stone for more traditional 1-on-1 mentored research. To apply for this Research Stream, contact Dr. Travesset … Continue reading Physics Research

Zebrafish Genome Editing

Course: BIOL/GEN 499; BCBio 490 Credits: 2 Instructor: Dr. Jeff Essner This laboratory will use the model system zebrafish to understand the mechanisms that guide cancer progression. The major focus will be determining how angiogenesis, the formation of blood vessels from pre-existing blood vessels, proceeds during tumor development and contributes to metastasis. For this, cutting-edge … Continue reading Zebrafish Genome Editing
