  • Spence, Rowena; Gerlach, Gabriele; Lawrence, Christian; Smith, Carl (2007-03-07)
    The zebrafish is an important model organism in developmental genetics, neurophysiology and biomedicine, but little is known about its natural ecology and behaviour. It is a small, shoaling cyprinid, native to the flood-plains ...
  • Kreit, Eric; Mathger, Lydia M.; Hanlon, Roger T.; Dennis, Patrick B.; Naik, Rajesh R.; Forsythe, Eric; Heikenfeld, Jason (2011-11)
    Adaptive reflective surfaces have been a challenge for both electronic paper (e-Paper) and biological organisms. Multiple colours, contrast, polarization, reflectance, diffusivity and texture must all be controlled ...
  • Kuzirian, A. M.; Epstein, H. T.; Gagliardi, C. J.; Nelson, T. J.; Sakakibara, M.; Taylor, C.; Scioletti, A. B.; Alkon, D. L. (Marine Biological Laboratory, 2006-06)
    Bryostatin, a potent agonist of protein kinase C (PKC), when administered to Hermissenda was found to affect acquisition of an associative learning paradigm. Low bryostatin concentrations (0.1 to 0.5 ng/ml) enhanced memory ...

    The Cephalopod Sequencing Consortium (CephSeq Consortium) was established at a NESCent Catalysis Group Meeting, “Paths to Cephalopod Genomics- Strategies, Choices, Organization,” held in Durham, North Carolina, USA on May ...
  • Izumi, Michi; Sweeney, Alison M.; DeMartini, Daniel; Weaver, James C.; Powers, Meghan L.; Tao, Andrea; Silvas, Tania V.; Kramer, Ryan M.; Crookes-Goodson, Wendy J.; Mathger, Lydia M.; Naik, Rajesh R.; Hanlon, Roger T.; Morse, Daniel E. (2009-07-18)
    Many cephalopods exhibit remarkable dermal iridescence, a component of their complex, dynamic camouflage and communication. In the species Euprymna scolopes, the light-organ iridescence is static and is due to reflectin ...
  • Roberts, Steven B.; Romano, Christina; Gerlach, Gabriele (2005-03-03)
    Interest in bay scallop conservation has resulted in organized stock enhancement efforts and increased attention to fisheries management issues. Genetic markers can facilitate the monitoring of enhancement efforts, ...
  • Madsen, Peter T.; Wilson, M.; Johnson, Mark P.; Hanlon, Roger T.; Bocconcelli, Alessandro; Aguilar De Soto, Natacha; Tyack, Peter L. (Inter-Research, 2007-11-27)
    Squid play an important role in biomass turnover in marine ecosystems and constitute a food source for ~90% of all echolocating toothed whale species. Nonetheless, it has been hypothesized that the soft bodies of squid ...
  • Halvorson, Harlyn O. (2007-09)
    The creation of the Station Biologique de Roscoff In France in 1859 heralded a century of study of marine animals. In the US, Congress created the U.S. Commission of Fish and Fisheries in 1871 to investigate declining fish ...
  • Chistoserdov, Andrei Y.; Smolowitz, Roxanna M.; Mirasol, Feliza; Hsu, Andrea (National Shellfisheries Association, 2005-10-01)
    Epizootic shell disease in the American lobster is an important factor affecting lobster fisheries in and around the Long Island Sound. It is a strictly dermal disease, because no correlation was observed between occurrence ...
  • De Faveri, Jacquelin; Smolowitz, Roxanna M.; Roberts, Steven B. (National Shellfisheries Association, 2009-08)
    Perkinus marinus causes a devastating disease, known as Dermo, in the Eastern oyster Crassostrea virginica. Routine detection of the disease is traditionally accomplished by the use of the Ray/Makin assay, using Fluid ...
  • Lyons, M. Maille; Smolowitz, Roxanna M.; Dungan, Christopher F.; Roberts, Steven B. (Inter-Research, 2006-09-14)
    Quahog Parasite Unknown (QPX) is a thraustochytrid pathogen responsible for catastrophic mortalities of the northern quahog (hard clam) Mercenaria mercenaria. A real-time quantitative polymerase chain reaction (qPCR) assay ...
  • Halvorson, Harlyn O. (2007-05)
    Dramatic changes in the foundation of academic departments in our Universities are uncommon. With the demonstration that DNA was the cellular source of genetic information, and that this information could be regulated, the ...
  • Gast, Rebecca J.; Cushman, E.; Moran, Dawn M.; Uhlinger, Kevin R.; Leavitt, Dale F.; Smolowitz, Roxanna M. (Inter-Research, 2006-06-12)
    Quahog Parasite Unknown (QPX) is a significant cause of hard clam Mercenaria mercenaria mortality along the northeast coast of the United States. It infects both wild and cultured clams, often annually in plots that are ...
  • Chiao, Chuan-Chin; Kelman, Emma J.; Hanlon, Roger T. (Marine Biological Laboratory, 2005-02)
    Cuttlefish (Sepia officinalis Linnaeus, 1758) on mixed light and dark gravel show disruptive body patterns for camouflage. This response is evoked when the size of the gravel is equivalent to the area of the "White square," ...
  • Rabbitt, Richard D.; Breneman, Kathryn D.; King, Curtis; Yamauchi, Angela M.; Boyle, Richard; Highstein, Stephen M. (Springer, 2009-06-10)
    The dynamic displacement of the semicircular canal cupula and modulation of afferent nerve discharge were measured simultaneously in response to physiological stimuli in vivo. The adaptation time constant(s) of normal ...
  • Gast, Rebecca J.; Moran, Dawn M.; Audemard, Corinne; Lyons, M. Maille; De Favari, Jacquelin; Reece, Kimberly S.; Leavitt, Dale F.; Smolowitz, Roxanna M. (Inter-Research, 2008-09-24)
