PFA the details. Word-count - 2000 - 3000 The research project is about the Copy Number variation of Carboxylesterase CES1 gene. Gene copy number variation, where different individuals have different numbers of the same gene, is an extensive source of variation between different individuals, with a higher mutation rate than single DNA nucleotides. The extent to which it contributes to disease susceptibility and recent human evolution is unclear. A recent study comparing genomes of different human populations across the world suggested that a copy number variation involving the CES1 (liver carboxylesterase 1) gene shows the largest difference in copy number between different populations. Liver carboxylesterase 1 is involved in the metabolism of cocaine, heroin and several pharmaceutical drugs, including glycovir (an anti-HIV1 drug), aspirin and dabigatran etexilate (an anticoagulant) involved in prevention of stroke in individuals with atrial fibrillation. Liver carboxylesterase 1 is also involved in the invasion of P.falciparum into the liver. Aims & Objectives: 1. Develop a robust molecular genetic assay for CES1 copy number. 2. Predict and investigate the effect of copy number on gene structure and expression. 3. Predict and investigate the duplications between UK Caucasians and find the frequency of duplicated alleles. What I have done? I have designed PRT assays to measure the copy number of CES1 gene. You will find the principle of the PRT in the introduction. I have design two PRT assay including : cis_PRT and trans_PRT. Only cis_PRT has worked and measure the copy number precisely when I applied it on known copy number positive controls. trans_PRT did not work and I excluded it from the experiment. I have run the cis_PRT assay on 5 positive controls and 34 samples from UK Caucasians. I have found that 9 samples from UK Caucasians have duplications as shown in the result. 8 out of 9 have heterozygote duplication alleles, while one have homozygote duplication allele. What I want from you? In the result part, if you could calculate the frequency of duplications between UK Caucasians and also calculate the frequency of heterozygote duplication alleles and the frequency of homozygote duplication allele. If you could apply the Hardy-Weinberg equation to calculate the frequency of those duplications alleles and then write the DISCUSSION PART. Thank you.

I am currently undertaking a project on the topic of basic financial literacy in superannuation. I am looking for a switched on, web-savvy individual to assist me: 1) Undertake in-depth research on the internet (including but not limited to public forums, blogs, chatrooms, and social media forums) to identify and capture common questions and issues faced by Australians. You will be required to research, collate and categorise the questions people ask (further details on the categories I'm using will be provided on commencement of work). As an example of some of the questions we're looking for: - "How do I know what risk profile I am?" - "What is a superannuation option / product? And which one am I supposed to pick?" - "I work in the health industry. Why can't I switch to a different super fund?" 2) Review a suite of existing journals and papers relating to financial literacy and superannuation. These will be provided to you for review, with a similar requirement of identifying and capturing the categories of questions / issues experienced by Australians. This is a short term engagement, commencing Monday 1 August and ending Friday 5 August. I am looking for someone locally based in Australia and thus will have a natural understanding of the types of forums that are more likely to be frequented by Australians. Financial experience is *not* required however a high degree of english literacy is, as you will be asked to review papers developed by universities. The ideal candidate is someone who possesses a strong work ethic, pays close attention to detail. You should possess an independent and inquisitive nature, as you will be required to proactively find and assess new websites or chat forums in which questions are being asked.
