Functional characterization of novel regulators required for genomic integrity
This thesis was submitted to the Undergraduate program in Biology at the University of Heidelberg, Germany in June, 2008 for the degree Bachelor of Science. Experimental design and ideas were developed together with Michael Boutros and Florian Fuchs. Florian Fuchs acted as a primary supervisor in the lab. The thesis project followed from a primary screen that Florian Fuchs developed and which was performed together with myself and others in the Boutros lab. A significant part of the results from my project were later published as part of a paper entitled “Clustering phenotype populations by genome-wide RNAi and multiparametric imaging.” published in Mol Syst Biol 6, 370 (doi: 10.1038/msb.2010.25).
