  • 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”.
