Student Presentation #3
In this presentation, seven grad students talk about their collective objective based on Professor Niles research: to figure out how cellular networks function and the role that small molecules play in these networks through gene knockout, RNA interference studies, and hybird studies. RNA apatamers' main function is to bind to a specific molecule. This material is great for gene expression, can be developed invitro, can be expressed inside a cell, and is useful in exploring protein based networks. To prove Prof Niles hypothesis, an equalized heme based synthetic pathway model was created.
