DNA microarrays can be used to measure environmental stress responses. If they are to be predictive of environmental impact, we need to determine if altered gene expression translates into negative impacts on individuals and populations. A large cDNA microarray (14000 spots) was created to measure molecular stress responses to cadmium in Daphnia magna,the mostwidely used aquatic indicator species, and relate responses to population growth rate (pgr). We used the array to detect differences in… CONTINUE READING
