There are recent next-generation sequencing technologies, Damage-seq and XR-seq, to map DNA damage and nucleotide excision repair, respectively, onto genomes of interest. These state-of-the-art technologies developed by Aziz Sancar's team at the University of North Carolina, are only known by the limited scientific environment. To spread these techniques out, a semi-scientific and informal text needs to be published for each method. Wikipedia is one of the most appropriate platforms to publish such a write-up. In this project, students will comprehensively scan the literature on XR-seq and Damage-seq, comprehend them and write two separate wiki pages for the techniques. At the end of the project, the students will have gained a knowledge of XR-seq and Damage-seq and they will have a chance to start analyzing the real datasets derived from these methods.
