Brigitte Clark (L) and Alexandra Resnick (R) presented their research at the 27th Annual Undergraduate Research, Scholarship and Creative Activities Conference (link). Brigitte shared her work on identifying ploidy (genome duplication) in white sturgeon while Alex discussed her research on the effects of climate change on the behavior of juvenile Antarctic fish.
Britt’s first Antarctic paper in now available in the Journal of Experimental Biology! Read about her study looking at the effects of ocean acidification on a juvenile Antarctic fish (the emerald rockcod, Trematomus bernacchii) on the JEB website or under Publications.
