Over the coming weeks and months, me and three friends are going to be creating our own genetically modified organism that could possibly be used in a medical environment. We will be selecting specific genes and promotors for the organism and will work together to hopefully publish a paper about the process and its possible medically-related uses.
The first stage of the process has already begun. We have all selected the specific promotors and genes we think would be best and submitted this template. I anticipate that it won’t be long until the four of us as a group start discussing writing the paper. I am really looking forward to this completely different type of project and getting the chance to publish a paper at the age of seventeen. I hope that this blog will encourage more people to read and educate themselves further around the wonderful world that is medicine.
