    Next-Gen Gene Sequencing

    By Mason Jones
    Published: June 25, 2012

    Next-generation genome analysis technology enables biologist Christopher Sullivan to study how viruses replicate and cause tumors in new ways.

    Sullivan is an assistant professor in Molecular Genetics and Microbiology. His lab studies how viruses interact with the host RNAi machineries to replicate, induce tumors, and cause pathogenesis.

      Hi Christopher Sullivan, a good friend of mine suffered from cancer... though he was treated before it was too late but had to suffer many side-effects from it... This made me wonder how cancer can affect a healthy person..as in y tumors get formed.. Nice work.. I hope your research can conclusively prove the reason y cancerous tissues are formed inside body..
