Characteristics of cell cycle regulation gene on C. elegans embryo

Submitted by Anonymous on July 31, 2015 - 3:31pm

<p>My summer project is a continuation of my work on C. elegans nematodes from last year, it is regarding a gene involved in cell cycle regulation.</p>
<p>At the beginning of my research I had looked up literature about the ortholog of my gene of interest in humans and it pointed to a dysregulation in cell division and ultimately, &#8220;mitotic arrest&#8221;.</p>

Blog Post 1- A Mind Body Intervention for Stress Reduction in Nursing Students

Submitted by Anonymous on July 31, 2015 - 3:30pm

<p>Hello, my name is Anesha Narain and as part of Pace University’s Undergraduate Research Program and in conjunction with my mentor Dr. Martha Greenberg, we have made great strides over the past month and a half in composing a stress relief modality that will mitigate “test anxiety” in incoming freshman nursing students. We have decided to make aromatherapy, more specifically, Lavender oil, the mainstay of our therapeutic intervention.

<p>The title of our project is Evaluating Mobile Computing Geographic Maps for the Daily Living of People with Disabilities. Our research seeks to improve the independence and mobility for higher-functioning individuals with disabilities at AHRC New York City. The mobile computing tools will help this population of individuals become involved and productive in their daily tasks. The technologies will allow someone with a disability to be participating members in the community.</p>

Cloning, Expression, and Purification of the Cellular TORC2 Protein

Submitted by Anonymous on July 31, 2015 - 3:29pm

<p>The title of our project is Cloning, Expression, and Purification of the Cellular TORC2 Protein. The purpose of our project is to look closely at TORC2 and TAX binding. TAX is a transcriptional activator that is required for HTLV-1 gene expression. TORC2 is a cellular gene that is known to increase HTLV-1 gene expression. We are transferring the TORC2 gene from a mammalian expression vector to a bacterial vector. Our goal is to purify the protein in the bacteria cells, so a pure TORC2 protein can be obtained to test TORC and TAX binding.

Determining the Molecular Mechanisms behind Reductive Stress Resistance by Persistent BCG through Genetic Profiling

<p>The World Health Organization (WHO) recently reported that approximately one-third of the world’s population are thought to be infected with <em>Mycobacterium tuberculosis</em> (1). At least one half of those infected individuals are infected with drug/multi-drug resistant strains. Although the global incidence of tuberculosis has been slowly declining since 2003, approximately nine million individuals contracted the disease with mortality rates approaching 20% in 2013.
