My interest in biological science focuses on 3 aspects: how a gene influences other genes; what is the interaction between proteins; and how the factors on a genetic level and protein level regulate each other. During the years in the department of Pharmaceutical Sciences, my interest was extended on protein interactions from a Mass spectrometer based proteomic lab. I believe the MGG PhD program can provide me the opportunity to gain genetic perspective to see the cells.
