To identify the genome surveillance mechanism(s) used by Rad26, a fission yeast DNA damage checkpoint protein.
Students will employ techniques of molecular genetics, biochemistry, and cell biology to: 1) determine the location of Rad26 in undamaged cells, 2) determine the location of Rad26 following DNA damage and 3) identify proteins that physically interact with Rad26.
