Poster #23: KAITLYN STEVENS – Identifying RNAi Modifiers Leading to Cellular Apoptosis in Retinal Degeneration

<< Return to the Main Page

Faculty mentor: Clement Chow

Our lab performed a study that examined the effect of genetic variation on Drosophila models; using a genome-wide association study, we identified candidate modifiers. The majority of these candidate genes were ones that influenced variation in retinal degeneration played a part in apoptosis. I helped perform a new apoptosis-specific screen to find additional modifier genes. Among several hits, here I will present data on one promising gene, bru1.
