Abstract
  • This is the presentation portion of my Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship (SURF) for the summer of 2019. I studied the heat shock response of the tardigrade Hypsibius exemplaris. I began to use RNAi to determine the effect of knockdown of suspected heat shock proteins in desiccation. I also worked on a project attempting to create transgenic tardigrades, during which I injected a tardigrade that then expressed worm proteins.
