Graduate Student, Curriculum in Genetics and Molecular Biology
I chose two PhD advisors: Jeff Sekelsky and Steve Matson. Their interests are similar (DNA repair, recombination, and replication), their expertises are complementary (genetics and biochemistry), and their labs are across the hall from one another. My primary project is a genetic and biochemical study of the FANCM helicase from Drosophila.
