Quick test measures DNA-repair


DNA in human cells breaks continuously. Usually, cells can repair those breaks just fine. Many tumor cells, however, have malfunctioning repair mechanisms. Researcher Eva Brinkman developed a web tool that is now used all over the world by researchers using the popular CRISPR method to edit DNA. She will defend her thesis about her DNA-repair research on Wednesday April 17th. Earlier this year she  received the Antoni van Leeuwenhoek Award. Good luck on Wednesday Eva!
