Stickleback Laboratories

BMSC has two laboratories specifically designed for breeding and rearing stickleback (Gasterosteus aculeatus complex), a powerful system for studying the molecular basis of evolutionary change in among natural populations. Our wet labs consist of two rooms supplied with flow-through seawater and de-chlorinated fresh water, and various sized aquaria to house brood stock and conduct replicated experiments.
These labs are currently in use, having been funded by research grants to Dr. Sean Rogers (UCalgary) and Dr. Dan Bolnick (U Texas at Austin).
