The objective of this research is to quantify differences molecular level genetic damage to bullhead catfish in the heavily contaminated Lake George reservoir versus levels of damage in bullhead catfish from the virtually uncontaminated Jasper Pulaski reservoir using the alkaline DNA unwinding method.
Our overall goal is to provide quantitative descriptions of species characteristics that increase the probability of successful invasion.

To evaluate the effect of culture temperature on growth, survival, and body composition of largemouth bass.
Development of a Biological Indicator of Exposure to PAHs in Fishes of the Grant Calumet River System
