Project Description

Kay Tweeten, Professor of Biology, received a $1,200 Faculty Research & Scholarly Activities Grant to compare proteins from L. variegatus populations by gel electrophoresis to determine if there were differences in levels of expression of specific proteins between the diploid and polyploid populations and to compare the response of the diploid and polyploid populations to the environmental toxicants cadmium chloride, fluoranthene, lead, and Bioban BP-10.
