Project Title: „ Aging related genetic polymorphisms of CHRNA7 gene and processing of visual information”, Rustaveli foundation for Young Scientists; Project duration: 24.12.2013 – 24.12.2014.
a).Project goal: the main goal of this project is to assess genetic polymorphism of CHRNA7 gene in older individuals with different potentials of visual information processing
b). Project implementation:
Task 1 – Preparatory work for project implementation,
Task 2 – DNA extraction,
Task 3 – Sequencing of DNA,
Task4 –Analysis of sequence data;
c). Expected results: Identification potential genetic factors involved in „backward masking“during aging process.
