Freshwater mussels (Unionoida) show high intraspecific morphological variability, and some shell morphological traits are believed to be associated with habitat conditions. It is not known whether and which of these ecophenotypic differences reflect underlying genetic differentiation or are the result of phenotypic plasticity. Using 103 amplified fragment(More)
The first is a call for more integration, both conceptually (§ 9.4) and across disciplines (§ 9.2). In particular, there is a clear message that the field should seek cross discipline collaboration between field, theoretical and laboratory-based epidemiologists and specialists in other fields (mathematicians, human geneticists, immunologists, etc). This is(More)
Although recent years have witnessed a rapid growth in the number of genetic studies of Antarctic organisms, relatively few studies have so far used nuclear markers, possibly due to the perceived cost and difficulty of isolating markers such as microsatellites. However, an often overlooked alternative is to use amplified fragment length polymorphisms(More)
The Major Histocompatability Complex (MHC) is one of the best known and best characterised components of the immune system, yet its functions remain somewhat enigmatic, including both anti-pathogen activity and kin recognition. To explore the importance of the MHC relative to literally hundreds of other components of the immune system, we compared MHC(More)
Making Plastic Printing Sustainable Amihan Amargo, Will Amos, Tina Chau, Aaron Hilado, Aldrin Lupisan, Eunji Russ Mentors: Jesse Jackson, Mark Walter Increased popularity of commercially available 3D printers has introduced another environmental issue: plastic filament waste. There exists no conventional way of disposing of or recycling failed prints and(More)
We evaluated the aerobic thioglycolate broth disk and the vaspar overlay broth disk methods for antibiotic susceptibility testing of 144 strains of anaerobes. For penicillin, carbenicillin, chloramphenicol, and metrionidazale, both broth disk methods yielded at least 95% agreement with results obtained by the National Committee for Clinical Laboratory(More)
