In anticipation of acceptance into one of the local universities this fall
I'm trying to gather some information on the viability of some research I'm
hoping to do. Being a Crypt Fiend I'm hoping to focus my research on that
genus. Being somewhat sensible I also know that a LOT of research has
already gone into them.
My situation's a little different than most students. I'll be going back as
a Post-Bac student for a second degree (No Gen Eds, woo hoo!) with
aspirations of combining my core BS studies with Masters work.
As an undergrad I want to do a study on how light (intensity, spectrum, etc)
and nutrition (levels and delivery of nutrients) affect the physiology and
morphology of both emersed and submersed grown crypts. I'm hoping to focus
any possible graduate work on tissue culture techniques for commercial
How much study has gone into these topics? Is there still room for new
research or are they pretty much completely figured out?
My thanks for your response,
In warm, moist Charlotte, NC where Bill is headed next.
