Transgenic zebrafish that carry inducible zic2a fusion proteins
Zic genes encode proteins that contain zinc fingers used to bind DNA and modify transcription of target genes. Several zic genes have been identified that are critical in regulating nervous system development in a wide ...
Going from embryo to adult: How zebrafish zic genes are regulated during development
This project aims to further our understanding of developmental genetics by identifying unknown transcription factor binding sites that play an important role in regulating zic2a, a gene required for proper neural development ...
Starvation responses of invasive and non-invasive Eurytemora affinis populations
Within the past century, the copepod Eurytemora affinis have invaded freshwater from saline sources throughout the Northern Hemisphere. Two genetically divergent clades (Atlantic and North Atlantic) of E. affinis coexist ...
