Assessment of Genetic Damage in Bullhead Catfish in Contaminated Reservoir in the Great Lakes Basin Region Using the Alkaline DNA Unwinding Method

Major Goals and Objectives

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.
