OWS 253 - Aquatic Toxicology Research lab
In room 253, Dr. Martinovic-Welgelt and her students investigate the effects of pollutants on organisms. Dr. Martinovic-Welgelt's expertise is in endocrine disruptors. Here she is assisting students to analyze data from the real time PCR, which allows researchers to quantify the amount of a specific kind of mRNA in tissues. From that information, you can determine if a particular gene has been turned on or not.
