In a year I will have an undergraduate degree in forensic molecular biology and will be entering graduate school to get an M.S. in forensic science. I'm currently trying to figure out what to do my thesis on and would love to study more about narcolepsy through my thesis. Because I want to be a DNA analyst and I have experience with sequencing DNA, I'm thinking about using a next-generation sequencing method to look at genetic causes of narcolepsy, such as SNP in the NLC1A gene.
So,, what questions do you have about the genetic causes of narcolepsy? What studies would you like to see done on narcolepsy? And, if you feel up to the challenge, how is forensic science linked to narcolepsy?
