Nicholas Stong

B.S. Molecular Biology and Applied Math, University of Wisconsin - Madison, 2008

Advisor: Harold Riethman
Research Description:
My broad research interest is in telomeres and their role in aging and cancer development. To further this interest I am developing tools to use high throughput sequencing data to quickly evaluate telomere sequence for integrity and mutation. These tools are being developed on high throughput sequence data from normal and cancer samples.
