Bernard Omolo has co-authored a paper entitled “A prognostic signature of G2 checkpoint function in melanoma cell-lines,” to appear soon in the journal Cell Cycle.  DNA damage checkpoints are barriers to carcinogenesis. The paper discusses how gene expression profiling of primary melanomas, through the quantitative trait analysis of the G2 checkpoint function, could be clinically useful in melanoma prognosis. Omolo is an associate professor of mathematics.
