Histological Analysis of Embryonic Development and Generation of Reproductive Structures in Lumbriculus
Name of Award
3M Small Scale Grant
Kay Tweeten, Professor of Biology, and Shannon Brick, student researcher, received a $2,000 award from the 3M Small Scale Grant program to analyze tissue sections of Lumbriculus embryos at different stages of development to describe the morphology of the embryos. Patterns of cleavage and cell arrangement during gastrulation, neurulation, and organogenesis will be examined. The embryonic stage at which reproductive structures including ovaries and testes develop also will be determined.
