  1. Great coverage of the abstract and introduction giving background information and explaining the field. Great job explaining your results and conclusion as well, you made it very easy to understand. Your future directions seemed well thought out too. It was part of my rubric to cover the acknowledgements, but I’m not sure if it is the same for your class. Overall, phenomenal job.

  2. Wonderful Presentation, Really well done 🙂 Not sure if ive just mis-understood, I wanted to ask, do know why the leucines in the kinase are important? Are they part of the active site, or structure, or even something else completely?

    1. Thank you so much! There is some research that says that the leucine rich regions play a role in phosphorylating proteins that are involved in DNA damage, but we know for sure that the leucine-rich regions are very important to the kinase.

  3. Great presentation – I learned so much!! Your poster is also very well done – informative and easy for the reader to follow. I also may have missed this in the presentation, but in your future directions section, you mention learning more about the role of Pprs42 in conjugation. In this scenario, what does conjugation mean and refer to?

    1. Thank you! Conjugation is the process of a cell transferring genetic material to another cell through direct contact.

  4. What is the clinical benefit of studying DNA damage response pathways? Are there certain scenarios where we would want to over-express/under-express the DNA damage response pathway?

  5. The main reason to study it is that DNA damage can lead to really harmful mutations and that maybe by learning more about the genes that are involved in repairing this damage we can prevent these mutations from occurring. I’m not sure specifically when it would be beneficial to over and under express the DNA damage response pathway.
