Featured Day in the Life of: Sidhartha, PhD student researching cancer biology.

I am working on establishing or rather finding if there is a correlation between development of lung cancer and age, smoking, dietary habits, other environmental factors. We are looking for SNPs which are present in the lung cancer patient and trying to link them with the above mentioned factors. For this we are using PCR technique to amplify our required SNP […]
