Brett Haines, B.S.

Research Assistant

Developing novel CRISPR protocols to isolate and sequence recalcitrant regions of the genome

As the first Research Assistant taken on by Dr. Dumont my responsibilities have included the establishment and implementation of resilient systems for managing the laboratory's inventory, mouse colony, and experimental data, in addition to the development and optimization of experimental protocols. In the coming year I plan to advance my development as a Research Assistant under the guidance of Dr. Dumont, acquire supplemental competencies in molecular and cell techniques, continue to learn Python and R programming, and assist in the authorship of published articles intended to elucidate the pseudoautosomal region of genetically diverse mouse models. My personal goal is to become a Research Scientist at JAX and an expert in CRISPR-mediated genome editing.
