Gastropods and macroinvertebrates as biological indicators of water quality in SE Wisconsin watersheds
This poster summarizes a study that sampled invertebrates in two southeastern Wisconsin creeks to discover whether or not the samples could be used to indicate water quality and fresh water environmental health.
Studies in fluorescence resonance energy transfer in a FAM/Iowa black labeled thrombin-binding aptamer
Describes a study with the hypotheses: using a dual labeled thrombin-binding aptamer (TBA), as ions are added to the solution total fluorescence will decrease when using FAM and Iowa black-FQ as a result of fluorescence ...
Over-the-counter supplements to improve human performance
This study examines whether athletes can improve their performance if they consume an alkalinizing supplement (Alka-Seltzer) before participating in a sport.
Investigation of casting slip in conjunction with wire and paper armatures
The focus of this research has been to further my understanding of casting slip (liquefied clay) concerning its properties, construction methods, as well as investigations into the possibilities of the fired casting slip ...
Public art : process and community differences
A poster describing an undergraduate research project completed at the University of Wisconsin--Whitewater. Through interviews with professional neighborhood planners in three Wisconsin cities that have sculpture walkways ...
Study of the difference in coverage of the Israeli operation in Gaza (December, 2008 to January, 2009) in the New York Times and BBC
Coverage of the Middle East by western media is often an issue of argument. The most controversial is how this media cover the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. While media defend itself by claiming the balanced, objective ...
The role of cytochrome P450 enzymes in caenorhabditis elegans dauer recovery
The purpose of this experiment is to determine if cytochromeP450 (cyp450) enzymes play a role in dauerrecovery of Caenorhabditiselegans.The life cycle of this free-living nematode is divided into several larval stages. ...
Genetic analysis of a nuclear receptor gene and a cytochrome P450 gene in Caenorhabditis elegans and their effect on dauer recovery
This study develops a better understanding of the genetic basis of dauer recovery and could be potentially applicable to understanding the ways in which parasitic nematodes respond to the environment of a host during ...
Silver-coated insects, concept and perception
A poster describing the artist's exhibit that explored the transition between life and death by coating organic insect carcasses with a thin film of metal, displaying them in a darkened room with shadows, and asking viewers ...
Identification of orthologs of Caenorhabditis elegans dauer formation genes in the parasitic nematode Brugia malayi
A study that looks at gene expression in the nematode Brugia malayi.
