Doctorate Tessy Korthout - A new technique for epigenetics research


A caterpillar and a butterfly have exactly the same DNA while they look really different. That is the work of proteins that determine how the DNA is 'read'. But how do all these proteins work together? Tessy Korthout developed a technique that allows researchers to analyze the function of thousands of proteins at the same time and thus better understand how they read the DNA together. Tessy, who is now a postdoc at the Hubrecht Institute, will defend her PhD thesis at the University of Amsterdam on June 12. Good luck Tessy!
