as part of her Senior Honors Thesis research.
) verified pH-induced changes in numerous
genes identified in previous cDNA microarray experiments.
Prof. Karen Hicks
developed assays for measuring photoperiod-sensitive genes in
BIOL 264 (Gene Manipulation Lab)
use ABI 7500 to measure expression of CYP1A sequences they cloned in several local fish species.
Student research with ABI 7500 continues by
Kenyon Summer Science Scholars
in multiple lab groups.
