  1. In your introduction, you mention that research into DNA damage response can help with treating diseases including cancer and neurodegenerative diseases. In your conclusion, you mention cancer but does your experimentation with SetK allow for application to those neurodegenerative diseases as well?

    1. To you know whether or not Set K could be used for the application of neurodegenerative diseases we would have to continue our research to specifically see how set k plays a role in DNA damage response. After this experimentation should be done to tweak it to see whether or not it could be applicable to neurodegenerative diseases.

  2. What specifically would future research look like to see if SetK is involved in the repair pathway? Could you elaborate on that a bit. Great poster and presentation!

    1. For starters we would want to redo our PCR an gel electrophoresis to make sure that the slight PCR error does not affect the increase in involvement of Set K. We would then want to see what exactly set k controls in the DNA damage repair system by stimulating or inhibiting it to get an outcome. Which would then allow us to continue research and apply it to real life problems.

  3. Do you think you would have obtained different, or the same results if there was no contamination during your experiment?

    1. I believe the same results would have been obtained since the rest of the PCR seems to be perfectly set up. As we can see the rad 51 expression matched the expected expression. The PCR error could just be due to accidentally missing to add something into the actual gel electrophoresis.
