The marine environment receives a wide variety of chemical inputs, many of which have the potential to damage DNA or interfere with the process of cell division. Here we describe a new assay based on the early embryo and larval stages of a planktonic spawning, tube dwelling marine worm, Pomatoceros lamarckii, which for experimental purposes has the advantage of producing large numbers of ripe gametes throughout the majority of the year. One of the most promising end-points is the use of… CONTINUE READING
