Andrew Fraser Molecular geneticist
Andrew Fraser’s research group studies the C. elegans nematode worm, modifying its gene expression to observe the effects on its development. Eventually, they hope this knowledge may be extended to better understand how mutations in humans’ DNA affects their health.
Fraser’s specific interests include inter-cellular communication and developmental cell biology/differentiation, especially the global effects that mutations in genes can have on other genes and pathways. He has been a key leader in carrying out genome-wide RNA studies, developing protein interaction maps and taking a systems biology approach to functionalizing the C. elegans genome.
