Lynn Bedard has a special interest in yeast -- but not the kiind of yeast used in baking bread. Bedard is collaborating with a colleague at the Indiana University School of Medicine in research on proteomics, or looking at the mechanism of how cells use DNA information to make RNA. There is a potential connection to cancer research because some of the proteins in yeast also exist in cancer.
