Sequencing of RNA Isolated From Murine Tumor Samples

Data generated from murine tumor RNA deep sequencing and bioinformatics will be used to identify tumor-specific mutations, and will be used to design personalized cancer immunotherapies.

In Memoriam: MSI is sorry to note that Dr. Ohlfest passed away on January 21, 2013. Dr. Ohlfest studied molecular biology at Iowa State University and received his B.S. in 2001.
