[unreadable] DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Schizophrenia is a complex brain disease with variable clinical manifestations and different pathogenetic mechanisms. The underlying basis of schizophrenia involves a combination of genetic and epigenetic factors, with several chromosomal loci linked to the disease. Here, we plan to perform global gene expression profiling on a mouse (the chakagrati, ckr) that models certain manifestations of the human condition. To accomplish this goal, we wi…

Invasive, exotic plants are currently a major threat to natural areas because they can spread through communities and replace native vegetation. Invasive species are believed to be second only to habitat loss in terms of their impact on native diversity, but the mechanisms that allow plants to become invasive are still poorly understood. We propose to investigate the mechanisms promoting invasiveness in Solidago gigantea, a species native to North America and an invasive exotic in Europe. We …

DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The transgenic ckr mice expressing an insertional mutation develop a progressive behavioral phenotype with motor symptoms resembling those seen in schizophrenia. As schizophrenia is a progressive brain disease of early development that affects forebrain neurons and circuits and ultimately behavior, there may be a relationship between disrupted forebrain development and basal ganglia dysfunction produced by the above insertional mutation. Here we will test …

The College is organizing a single laboratory into an all-purpose Microscope Resource Center housing all of the College's microscopes and related equipment, allowing for maximum utilization of equipment at the lowest cost to the College. The center is serving the Animal Health Technology program as well as the Biology Department. A microvideo camera unit and the new microscopes themselves are aiding the introductory students through expanding their capability for viewing samples of special in…
