I enjoy research on the genetic elements of disease.
In 1999, I visited Sanger Center, UK, and came back with a larger view toward protein research.
Using the tools available at ANL, I have observed a pattern in genetic residues I hope can be
useful (identifying cell division anchor positions). One tool I am working on is called protein crusher,
wiki 52934. This tool was designed to examine residues, with protein wing, protein feather.
In particular, I use the spyrochete as a model to examine cell division anchor points I hope to prove useful.
This organism cleaves on the longitudinal axis.
I of course am happy to be preparing a larger Phd thesis on this work, and hope to gain NSF funding to continue ...with the aim of examining many species.
I am a skate dad and have a promising skater in my family. We live in Washington state.
