Open Reading Frame Blog

Welcome to my blog, Open Reading Frame. An open reading frame is a concept in genetics referring to a stretch of DNA sequence that can be “read” by cellular machinery to produce a protein. If you shift the frame right or left you completely change how the sequence is read. I have titled my blog “Open Reading Frame” to invoke the idea of many possible readings and viewpoints on genetics and its importance in our lives. I started the blog at the same time as I officially started my doctoral dissertation research in Public Health Genetics at the University of Washington, in Fall 2015. Posts are typically at least tangentially related to my dissertation project, though I sometimes venture into blogging about other happenings and events in genetics. My goal is to post every week or two; the more people I think/know are reading, enjoying, and/or benefiting from these posts, the better positioned I’ll be to meet that goal! So, please subscribe and share widely. Thanks!
