  • Schneck, Karen; Featherston, Kyah; Silver, Kristopher (2018-12-14)
    RNA interference (RNAi) uses double-stranded RNA (dsRNA) molecules to degrade and suppress the transcript level of a complementary mRNA target1. The RNAi pathway is complex and includes many different proteins, ...
  • Stewart, Nathan; Marshall, Jeremy
    This research project was set up to determine the suitability of two extreme diets. Since this experiment only used basic extremes, some of the data were already known, or assumed, such as that a flour beetle can survive ...
  • McNemee, Rachel; Marshall, Jeremy (2018-12-14)
    Male red flour beetles (Tribolium castaneum) are shown to attract females through an aggression pheromone that may be altered due to varying degrees of stress (Wade, 1984). If these females do follow certain pheromone cues, ...
  • Reynolds, Samantha; Marshall, Jeremy (2018-12-14)
    Estimating population occurs in many fields of study and professions. In order to accurately receive the closest estimate, it is important to know what model is the most accurate to use. After using the removal sampling ...
