Week 17 (23 - 29)
By understanding how species of Daphnia respond to toxic elements like industrial contaminants, toxic algae blooms or thermal stress, scientists can look at how environmental changes caused by agriculture and road runoff or warming temperatures and climate change could impact populations in lakes, rivers and standing bodies of water.

Week 14 (02 - 08)
In the early stages of infection (left) bacteria employ virulence toxins to enter cells. By the time the infection is established, (right) enough of the quorum signaling molecule OHHL has been released by bacteria to communicate that a sufficient number of bacteria are present. The signal shuts down production of toxins.
