2010 Summer Research Projects

 •  Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center Summer Research Interns

Daniel Hart (Biology major, 2011)
Project title:  Identifying genes required for germ cell rearrangement in the C. elegans gonad
Lab Mentors:  Jeffrey N. Molk & James R Priess

Projection Description: In the laboratory of Dr. James Priess, Dan studied cell rearrangement and the modulation of cell adhesion in the model system Caenorhabditis elegans. He conducted a targeted RNAi screen to identify genes that affect cell intercalation in the gonad. Several candidate genes, including cytoskeletal and cell signaling factors, were identified.
