  • Current Research: Cloning the Putative Actin Gene of the Seagrass Syringodium Flilforme
  • Description: Robert and Dr. Cammarata cloned the putative actin gene of the local seagrass syringodium filiforme.  It will be used as a control in a gene regulation assay to determine the stress level and, therefore, health of the seagrass beds.  This will be a faster indicator of health compared to the current method, which is a “lagging indicator”.

  • Current Research: Visual Segmentation Based Data Record Extraction from Web Documents
  • Description: The purpose of Amber and Dr. Li’s project is to develop an algorithm to extract the semantic structure of Web pages.  It will simulate how a user understands Web layout structure based on visual perception such as font sizes, colors, blanks, images, etc.  This project can be used to retrieve information from semi-structured Web pages as well as to eliminate clutter from the Web pages.
