Playing in the mud-using gene expression to assess contaminant effects on sediment dwelling invertebrates.

Abstract

Bioaccumulation and toxicity tests using benthic invertebrates such as the estuarine amphipod Leptocheirus plumulosus are typically used to assess the ecological risk associated with contaminated sediments. Despite their ecological and regulatory importance, little is known about such species at the genetic level. To begin understanding cellular and genetic… (More)
