Paul Wernsing

I primarily function as lab/technical support.  Help and conduct genetic toxicology experimentation, including application of fluorescence microscope methods and computerized images to genetic damage scoring.  I work with researchers to discuss the evolution of toxicity in erythropoietic systems of fish and in tissues of other aquatic organisms as a result of exposure to chemical stressors.  I handle, deploy and retrieve hester-deny traps, collect aquatic organisms from rivers and lakes in support of ongoing research studies, and support sorting of macroinvertebrates at the Experimental Stream Facility.
