April 11, 2017 Poster Session: 9:30am – noon, MCLS 3rd floor Lobby
Refreshments from Atkins Farm
Students in Professor Goutte’s Genetic Analysis Course (Biology 241) have been spending the semester learning how tricks and tools of genetic analysis can be used to uncover the inner workings of a cell. Using the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisae as a model system, students are analyzing genetic mutants that lack an unknown cellular component. Their analysis is beginning to reveal clues as to the molecular function of the genes in question, and insights into the molecular machinery that drives cellular response to outside cues.
This poster session comes before the work is complete so that it can allow for fruitful exchange of ideas in time to influence the students’ final experimental design and analysis.
Come hear about how the students are tackling their genetic mysteries!
