Bio

I'm Malik Saaka. I'm a Biology major here at FIU, and a member of the receptor cloning team in the DeGennaro Lab.

Project

My project deals with the cloning of Odorant Receptors found in Aedes egypti, and understanding compounds that activate and block their respective ion channel activity. There are 132 OR's, and I hope to clone them all!
