Research title: Uncovering genomic basis of seasonal biology

Research Summary

In my current research, I am focusing on understanding the genetic basis of photoperiodic regulation, which is a biological process that allows organisms to adapt to seasonal changes in their environment. Specifically, I am interested in finding the genetic variations that differentiate LD (long day) and SD (short day) responses in Siberian hamsters. I am using a combination of sequencing technologies, bioinformatics tools, and molecular biology techniques to achieve this goal.
