Project Description/Abstract

  • This project aims to address several questions using the same experimental framework (mutation accumulation lines).
    • What is the mutation rate of rotifer genomes?
    • Does dessication play a role in increasing genetic diversity of bdelloid rotifer populations? (Maybe we'll get to that)

Here is the basic plan

  • It takes one about a day for P. roseola eggs to hatch, and about 5 for the rotifer to become sexually mature.
  • Take offspring of a single young female P. roseola and culture them in 24 well dishes.
  • After 5 days take one young rotifer female and from each well and move her to a plate.


  • Doing pilot tests of P. roseola lab culture life history
