Abstract

The Bioindicators project continues the work of the previous projects by attempting to isolate the contaminant known as Benzo[a]pyrene from crayfish extract. The end goal is to be able to determine how long each crayfish needs to be exposed to B[a]P to appear in the tissue. Preliminary analysis shows that the specimens may need to be exposed to the contaminants for a longer period of time than the MQP parameters allow.
