The DNA cycle path in Cambridge, which starts near the LMB, depicts the sequence of the BRCA2 gene, which is involved in some forms of breast cancer. In the lab, we use CRISPR to cause targeted errors in specific genes to study their function. We call these errors ‘indels’. Day 46 of #LMB365, a photo taken by Andrew Beale, shows an ‘indel’ in the BRCA2 gene.
