Research and Practice Interests

My laboratory is studying primary gene amplification in the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisae. Primary gene amplification is the mutation from one gene per genome to two or more genes per genome. Gene amplification is important because it is the first step in the formation. My laboratory has developed a system to detect amplifications in the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisae.
