Genetic Variation in Rainbow Darters in the Monongahela River
Friday, November 7, 2014
Plaza Foyer (Sheraton)
We examined lock systems to see if they isolated populations of rainbow darters in tributaries of the Monongahela River. Fish were collected from streams, both separated and not separated by the locks. We used microsatellite sequences in the DNA to allow us to identify genetic change between populations.
