Proposal 8 Identification Of Novel Proteins cDna And Genes Induced Or Repressed By A Specific Treatment

It is reasonable to hypothesize that treatment of cultured cells or organisms with an important chemical, drug, alcohol or hormone may induce or repress the expression of certain proteins. Therefore, a research proposal on the identification of these proteins and isolation of the cDNAs or genes coding for the proteins, especially the novel genes, would provide fundamental information about the action or mechanisms involved as a result of the treatment. Once a novel gene is isolated, it allows one to open a broad research area concerning the treatment, which has promise for funding. Meanwhile, this is an excellent research project for a master's or Ph.D. thesis. Figure 1.8 gives a guide for this type of research.
