  1. How do you think researchers could incorporate your findings with Hyproc14 into cancer treatment and technology?

    1. If we are able to identify Hyproc14 as having a large role in DNA repair we could test to see if it was mutated at oen point. From that we could use CRISPR to alter that gene back therefore stopping the spread of cancer.

  2. How was Hyproc14 chosen to be the model gene for this study, and are there any other genes that you are considering testing?

  3. As mentioned, for future directions you explained that perhaps this experiment could be done again to account for human error. Is there any change that would be made when doing this experiment again ? Are there any extraneous variables that could be contained?

    1. In the future I would probably use more aseptic techniques in order to prevent any contamination. Using different pcr products could also stop failure of results.

  4. Are there genes similar to Hyproc14 in current use for treating DNA damage in humans? If not, what are the current treatments for DNA damage?

    1. Sadly, there are not any human homologs so there is not a large factor with helping with cancer research in the future but rather serves as a model that we could continually use for further testing.

  5. Super cool presentation! Did you have to try different primers or did the first primer that you designed worked?

    1. The first primer I designed ended up working, You can see that in the explanation of figure 1!

    1. With my current conclusions I am unable to make any great future discoveries. The most that I would say is that this gene could be continually tested over and over again to see if Hyproc14 was involved in DNA damage.
