Histological Analysis of Embryonic Development and Generation of Reproductive Structures in Lumbriculus

Name of Award

3M Small Scale Grant

Date Awarded




Project Description

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.
