Graduate student Anushi Sharma worked on her research titled, “Biochemical analysis of DNA mismatch repair protein, Mlh1-Pms1″ during the winter break. “Graduate students generally don’t take long breaks. Almost everyone here takes a break of one week or 10 days, but then we work the rest of the recess,” Sharma says. Her advisor is Manju Hingorani, associate professor of molecular biology and biochemistry.
