Dr. Mia Levine, a postdoctoral fellow in the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center Basic Sciences Division’s Malik Lab, recently won a 2011 DeLill Nasser Award for Professional Development in Genetics from the Genetics Society of America. Her $1,000 prize, one of six awarded, will support her travel to the International Conference on Drosophila Heterochromatin in Gubbio, Italy, in June 2011.
Malik Lab researchers find heterochromatin helps explain speciation
Nov. 2, 2009
New research into this field by Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center Basic Sciences Division researchers, published online Oct. 22 in Science Express, suggests that the explanation for why crosses between two species often yeild sterile or inviable progeny lies within the “dark matter" of the genome: heterochromatin, a tightly packed, gene-poor compartment of DNA found within the genomes of all nucleated cells.
