Replication-Dependent Mechanism of Chromosome Fragility at the Site of Inverted Repeats in Saccharomyces cerevisiae
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2006-12-05)
Genome instability is linked to cancer and many hereditary diseases. Chromosomal aberrations are often associated with repeats that can adopt DNA secondary structures. Studying the mechanism of genome instability caused ...
Characterization of the Che7 System of Myxococcus xanthus
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2006-12-15)
Myxococcus xanthus is a Gram negative soil bacterium that utilizes eight chemosensory systems of interacting proteins, most of which are homologous to the E.coli chemotaxis proteins, in order to regulate its two types ...
Development of Microsatellite Primers for Investigating Genetic Connectivity and Diversity of Scleractinian Corals
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2006-12-14)
We focus on the development of microsatellite loci isolated from two scleractinian coral species (Montastraea cavernosa and Porites astreoides). To analyze the genetic structure of scleractinian coral populations, it is ...
Characterization and isolation of a rotifer-deterrent compound in the red tide dinoflagellate Karenia brevis
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2006-12)
Spontaneous phytoplankton blooms cause extensive damage to aquatic ecosystems all over the world. Red Tide, a type of bloom, causes extensive damage in the Gulf of Mexico every year. Red tide is caused by Karenia brevis, ...
