A Summer of Internship: Week 8 and the Conclusion at Adebali Labs

Week 8: The Grand Finale – Weaving Science into Art πŸŽ¨πŸ”¬

Hello, dear readers! As we arrived at Week 8, our journey at Adebali Labs reached its zenith. With all our learnings from the past weeks in hand, we dove headfirst into crafting our master implementation. Join me for a concluding recap of this intriguing voyage!

The Grand Strategy πŸ“œβš™οΈ

Deciphering Data with Bedtools: We commenced by untangling our data, dividing the strands into Transcribed (TS) and Non-Transcribed (NTS). Using 'bedtools intersect', a gem in bioinformatics, the process was as efficient as it was elegant.

Formulating Genetic Mathematics: Our core step was translating genetic data into mathematical expressions. Imagine a mathematical representation so apt that it mirrors genetic intricacies!

Navigating with Linear Regression: Our trusty tool, linear regression, gave us the power to extract coefficients for our equations, shedding light on the roles of our mutants, CSB, and XPC.

Strand Stratification: Further disentangling our genetic tapestry, we differentiated the values into respective strands. With this, our mutants – the CSB's TS strand and XPC's NTS strand – revealed themselves as key contributors to our understanding of Transcription-Coupled Repair (TCR) and Global Repair (GR).

Conclusion & Reflection πŸŒ…πŸ”

Week 8 was akin to a beautiful symphony's climax. From data processing with specialized tools like bedtools, to embracing the magic of linear regression, and sculpting genetic insights into mathematical forms, our journey was a masterclass in interdisciplinary studies.

Our voyage was not merely about understanding genetic data but synthesizing varied tools and techniques into a harmonious, insightful whole. Looking back, our project stands as a testament to what can be achieved with a blend of curiosity, expertise, and collaboration.

As we wrap up, it's evident: science, when approached methodically and creatively, unravels stories even from the densest of data tapestries. Here's to the wonders of exploration, innovation, and discovery!

Till the next post – as always - keep exploring and keep creatingβœ¨πŸ”
