How to know which expirements to do? - (Jan/12/2013 )
Well, generally they are expecting that you have an overview about that what you will doing in your experiments. Understanding the techniques which you will use to get you to your target/aim. Normally, they should give you an main project which will be splitted or added into small project during your Phd Journay.
Its not easy with your description to make an clear research statment. You know that breat cancer is well studied field in oncology. So you must specify little bit more.
Field in which you will be involved are:
1. Molecular Biology - Recombinant DNA Technology, Cloning, PCR, qPCR, DNA Microarray, etc.
2. Biochemistry - Recombinant Protein Technology, SDS-PAGE, Wester-Blot, IP, Pulldown etc.
3. Cell Biology - Primary Cell, Immortalized Cell Line, Transient/Stable Transfection, siRNA and/or shRNA, MTT Test, Apoptosis Test, Proliferation Assay etc.
4. Screening - small molecules Library, Inhibitors etc.
If i could help you in this way.
