  1. If for whatever reason your gene is found to not respond to DNA damage, what would you predict its use is?

    1. According to ciliates.org, it plays a role in DNA binding in the nucleus of the cell. While I predict it plays a role in DNA function, it might not play a role in DNA repair pathways

  2. Aisha, I really enjoyed your presentation! If someone were to do further experiments, as suggested in your future directions, and determine that it does play a role in DNA damage, what would that mean for future research?

    1. That’s a good question, we can study this gene with tools such as CRISPR, but to make sure, another RT-PCR should be conducted

  3. After the next PCR is run and it is determined whether your gene responds to DNA damage or not, how does this knowledge contribute to future use of the gene?

    1. DNA damage response pathways are important fo us to learn about because it could help us solves genetic problems such as cancer and mutations. The more we know about this kind of research the better

  4. If this gene is found to be involved in DNA damage response, then what is the impact of this finding?

  5. Nice presentation! If the gene does not work in helping for DNA repair, what might be its other functions?

    1. DNA binding according to cililates.org, but it does display mRNA patterns similar to genes that are known to be a part of DNA repair pathways
