Investigation of Physiological Similarities Between Pandalus platycerus and Pandalus danaeThe original project objective was to determine a suitable model organism to study Pandalus platyceros. I proposed to use the local dock shrimp Pandalus danae to do this research. This project allowed me to further my research on the study of Pandalid shrimps. I have been working with a very large species of shrimp for 3 years and getting experience working with a small shrimp species has greatly influenced my strengths in dissection methods. I feel confident I could isolate almost any tissue in any shrimp species given the correct tools, something I was skeptical about before this project. This project will give my mentor and I the opportunity to publish another gene sequence and further the knowledge of the genus Pandalus. In the future I could use this knowledge to sequence androgenic gland genes in other Pandalus species, potentially becoming part of a master’s project.
