Genetic profiling of disease progression in myeloma

The intern will be studying the way genetics are changed during the progression of multiple myeloma and cancers in general. The changes in the genetic profile will help understand the disease. Throughout the project, genetic alterations of chromosome ends, known as telomeres, will be analyzed through complex mathematical and computational 3D architectural softwares to predict how certain cancer patients will do in the future or even if they will respond to certain medications.
