Hello! My name is Anika Shah, and I am going to be writing a research paper about cell biology and its connection to cancer development. I love biological processes, especially cell processes, and I'm really excited to learn more about it. In addition to biology, I love hiking and photography, as well as cooking and baking. I'm excited to get started on my project!

My article is going to focus on an overview of what CRISPR screening is, and its various uses. It will primarily cover its uses in regards to colon cancers, but will still cover other concepts. It will encompass procedures, data analysis, explanations, and further inquiry.
