At finite baryon chemical potential, the sign problem hinders Monte Carlo simulations which is remedied by a Dual Representation that makes the sign problem mild. At the strong coupling limit, the dual formulation with staggered quarks is well established. We have used this formulation to look at the quark mass dependence of the baryon mass and the nuclear transition which allows us to quantify the nuclear interaction. The results obtained are also compared with the mean field theory.
