DNA replication

Position available: 2016 Honours Student Project in our Lab

Posted on Updated on

Great news we are currently looking for a new honours student for 2016.

The title of the project is “Developing novel biosensors to monitor DNA damage in cancer cells”.

Its a very exciting new project incorporating cutting edge microscopy and fluorescent biosensors.

If you think you have what it takes and are interested please feel free contact myself, or UNSW SoMS.

Here is a HeLa cell in the first stages of mitosis (prophase) just as it has begun to condensing its DNA into chromosomes. At this point it looks strikingly similar to the folds of a human brain. The image has been put through a few photoshop filters to give this stunning final image.Cell-Brains-Colour-web
