Phage For Thought: Investigating The Ingestion And Assimilation Of Viruses Into Rotifer (Brachionus Plicatilis) Tissues, Brittany Straznickas, William Jaeckle, Faculty Advisor

John Wesley Powell Student Research Conference

Rotifers are a group of suspension-feeding aquatic invertebrate animals that range from approximately 50–2,000 micrometers in size. The typical food sources for rotifers (i.e., unicellular algae, 2-10 micrometers in diameter) are visible with light microscopy. Bacteriophages (viruses that use bacteria as hosts) are too small (30-110 nanometers in diameter) to be seen using light microscopy, but are present in great abundance (~ 1030 in the world’s oceans). If or how particles as small as bacteriophages are consumed as food is incompletely known; Sorenson ('15) reported that rotifers ingest water containing the fluorescently-labeled (Dichlorotriazinylamino fluorescein, DTAF) bacteriophages ...

Expression And Isolation Of The Bche Protein From Dinoroseobacter Shibae In Rhodobacter Capsulatus, Abigail Brown, David Bollivar, Faculty Advisor Apr 2016

Expression And Isolation Of The Bche Protein From Dinoroseobacter Shibae In Rhodobacter Capsulatus, Abigail Brown, David Bollivar, Faculty Advisor

John Wesley Powell Student Research Conference

Photosynthetic bacteria rely on photosynthesis to get energy. Bacteriochlorophylls harvest the light energy in photosynthesis and are important to these bacteria, but several enzymes used to synthesize this macromolecule are not completely understood. The gene bchE, from the marine bacterium Dinoroseobacter shibae, has been proposed to code for a protein used to help catalyze the formation of the bacteriochlorophyll structure. Isolation of polypeptide encoded by the bchE gene was performed to better understand this enzyme. Using conjugation, ST18 E. coli cells with plasmids containing the bchE gene were mated with a Rhodobacter capsulatus strain lacking functional BchE to allow expression ...

A Victory In Defeat: Historical Memory, Metanarratives, And The Fate Of Poland In World War Two, Ziven Chinburg, Gordon Horwitz, Faculty Advisor Apr 2016

A Victory In Defeat: Historical Memory, Metanarratives, And The Fate Of Poland In World War Two, Ziven Chinburg, Gordon Horwitz, Faculty Advisor

John Wesley Powell Student Research Conference

This paper explores the fate of Poland during and immediately after the Second World War. The paper examines the question of Western betrayal of Poland. Why some Poles felt, and continue to feel, a sense of betrayal by their allies during the war is examined. How the Poles came to understand their fate and position in the world during and after World War Two is examined. The Warsaw Uprising is taken as a case study for the Polish experience of World War Two. The degree of Allied support and intervention is discussed, along with the failures of the Polish Government-in-Exile ...
