Taylor’s Question: How can we conserve marine populations?
Keystone Title: HSP70 Gene Expression in the Marine Copepod Tigriopus Californicus, Research Proposal
Abstract: An important step in understanding the effects of climate change on marine communities is to analyze the response of marine species to temperature changes. This paper proposes an inexpensive and accurate method of heat-shock quantification in marine copepods, as well as a method proposal for successfully isolating RNA from these species.
