Abstract

Following Ph.D. research performed by Brian Libby in 1998, this project provides additional evidence that the srf-6 gene in C. elegans may be located on a 1.9kb fragment from cosmid F41G3. This evidence was obtained via monoclonal antibody staining of transformed worms grown at 16?C and comparison to the 20?C results presented by Libby's. In order to follow up on these findings, genomic DNA was then harvested from eight srf-6 mutant strains for future sequencing.
