Maheetha aims to identify the extent of allele specific translation and to explore the role of differences in expression of translation regulatory proteins, bringing us closer to the ability to link genetic information to phenotypic impact, specifically in relation to human disease.

Poster presented at the Stanford Bio-X Interdisciplinary Initiatives Symposium on August 27, 2014:
