      The work that I do finding mutations that help humans can help to combat disease. From viruses to cancer, we have developed natural ways to fight these diseases and if I can find the natural ways that we do it, we can produce medicines that will help people that don’t have these mutations.

      Plus, I am also finding out about the events that shapes our species, and that is just cool.
