26 - Diversity And Abundance Of Invasive Aedes Albopictus, Other Mosquitoes (Diptera: Culicidae), And Arthropods In North Georgia., Mason Carlisle, Madison Embrick

Georgia Undergraduate Research Conference (GURC)

Diversity and Abundance of Invasive Aedes albopictus, Other Mosquitoes (Diptera: Culicidae), and Arthropods in North Georgia.

Carlisle M., Embrick M., Lampert E., Sangweme D.

With the increase in invasive species and the increasing numbers of the invasive Culicidae family member Aedes albopictus and the numerous deadly diseases Aedes albopictus can vector, it becomes increasingly important to survey and keep records of local populations and diversity of mosquitoes. We surveyed local culicid populations dissecting the female mosquitoes looking for nematodes to search for Wolbachia, and preserving all the bycatch and using the bycatch as an insight into the population and diversity ...

Undergraduate Research Symposium - Prescott

Historically ecological surveys require significant man hours in the field, utilizing methods which can stress species being observed. In using environmental DNA (eDNA) gathered from air, soil, and water, traditional methods may be supplemented or reduced in order to more efficiently utilize funding and reduce or eliminate stress on surveyed species. Water was collected in replicates using aseptic technique from two different sites, 60 miles apart, along the Verde River. Samples were vacuum filtered within 24 hours through 0.45 μm cellulose nitrate (CN) filters to collect eDNA. DNA extraction from the filters was performed. The polymerase chain reaction (PCR ...

Circadian Effects Of The Conditional Knockdown Of Serotonin In The Midbrain Raphe Nuclear Complex Of Adult Mice, Robert W. Woodruff Iii, Ashley Shemery, Alex Yaw, J. David Glass Mar 2016

Circadian Effects Of The Conditional Knockdown Of Serotonin In The Midbrain Raphe Nuclear Complex Of Adult Mice, Robert W. Woodruff Iii, Ashley Shemery, Alex Yaw, J. David Glass

Undergraduate Research Symposium

Hypothesis: The brain serotonin (5-HT) system is known to play a key role in regulating critical processes such as circadian clock timing, motivation, reward response and sleep. 5-HT knockout (SKO) mouse models have previously been used to understand 5-HT actions, but such global 5-HT depletion has profound non-targeted neurophysiological and developmental consequences. Therefore, conditional SKOs are needed. Here, we performed preliminary behavioral phenotyping in a conditional 5-HT knock down model where 5-HT synthesis blockade was targeted specifically to the midbrain raphe nuclear complex (site of hypothalamic serotonergic innervation) in adult mice.

Methods: Male Tph2-floxed mice were injected with AAV-Cre (experimental ...

A Partnership Approach To Protecting And Improving Water Quality In The Shellfish Watersheds Of Pierce County, Cindy Callahan, Erin Ewald, Barbara Ann Smolko, Ray Hanowell

Salish Sea Ecosystem Conference

Commercial shellfish growing is a significant economic driver on the Key Peninsula of Pierce County, Washington. In response to the downgrades of several shellfish areas in the 1990’s and early 2000’s and the establishment of Shellfish Protection Districts and Closure Response Plans, it was recognized that a more proactive approach was needed. In an effort to build cooperation and a partnership across Pierce County, and address bacterial contamination in the shellfish growing areas, a Pierce County Shellfish Partners Strategic Plan was developed and formalized in March of 2013. The partnership initially included Pierce County Surface Water Management (SWM ...


P-19 Hcnabc Operon Transcription Of Pseudomonas Putida Under Varying Iron And Oxygen Concentrations And Culture Age, Christine Lee Mar 2014

P-19 Hcnabc Operon Transcription Of Pseudomonas Putida Under Varying Iron And Oxygen Concentrations And Culture Age, Christine Lee

Honors Scholars & Undergraduate Research Poster Symposium Programs

The species Pseudomonas putida produces hydrogen cyanide (HCN) through the transcription of the hcnABC operon. The purpose of this experiment is to determine how the hcnABC operon is affected by varying levels of iron and oxygen, and age of bacteria culture. To test this, P. putida is grown under five conditions: the presence of iron, the absence of iron, with aeration, without aeration, and without iron and aeration. At 8, 18, and 30 hours, the cultures are assessed for HCN production and cell density. HCN production is measured via bioluminescence; light emission occurs whenever HCN is produced because the modified ...
