We are excited to welcome Dipak Patel to the lab as a new Graduate student in the lab. Dipak is a first year student in the Genetics and Genomics Program. Prior to coming to BCM Dipak did his Bachelor’s at Illinois State University. He also worked as Research Assistant at MD Anderson in yeast. Somehow, the immeasurably longer generation time of mice as compared to yeast or flies has not scared Dipak off.
