Detection of Deoxyribonucleic Acid Damage Induced by Metal Ion Interactions and Repair of Metal Ion Deoxyribonucleic Acid Cross-links
There are many forms of DNA damage. One of these, DNA-metal cross-links are particularly problematic as they not only affect the tautomeric structure of DNA, but can also inhibit enzymatic activity and block amplification ...
How does environmental variation effect fitness of density-dependent habitat selectors? / by Jody T. MacEachern.
The spatial distribution of animals can arise through a variety of habitat-selection strategies. It is unclear which habitat characteristics lead to the evolution of one of these strategies over another. Thus I use an ...
Biofilm formation of environmental and enterohemorrhagic Escherichia coli / by Stefan Moreira.
Sample sites : Boulevard Lake & Chippewa Park, Thunder Bay ; Billy Lake, Dorion (Northwestern Ontario).
Factors influencing thermal variability and fish distribution in small boreal steams / by Lisa McKee.
The spatial variability of stream temperature is an important component of habitat within streams providing optimal temperatures for foraging and thermal refugia for sensitive species such as brook trout. Riparian shading ...
Assessing in vitro DNA repair methods / by Ryan Lehto.
The DNA molecule is constantly under attack from endogenous and exogenous sources leading to degradation by a variety of forms of damage. In this study current methods of in vitro DNA repair methods were evaluated for ...
