Posting some old and new news:
- Our paper on the transcriptomic characterization of SF3B1 mutations in CLL was published in November and is featured on the cover of Cancer Cell [link]
- Our lab was awarded a grant from the Santa Cruz Cancer Benefit Group for our work on alternative splicing in cancer [link]
- Max Marin is awarded a Crown College Undergraduate Research Fellowship and the Koret Undergraduate Research Scholarship!
Alexis Thornton joins the lab as a Junior Specialist/Post-Bacc! She will be working on applying eVIP to study transcript variants.
What is eVIP? Our paper with colleagues at the Broad on high-throughput approaches to functionally characterize cancer variants is now officially out as a featured article in Cancer Cell!
