s and training that enhance the long-term research goals of the investigator. Shaw will take advantage of this aspect by teaming with Michael Lynch, Distinguished Professor of biology at IU Bloomington, and Michael Pfrender, associate professor of biological sciences at the University of Notre Dame.

Lynch, a fellow of the National Academy of Sciences, will lend his expertise in assessing the spontaneous accumulation of mutations. Pfrender, faculty director of the Genomics Core Facility at Notre Dame, will provide assistance in producing genetic crosses of Daphnia that will help uncover the biological effects of CNV. These collaborations will enhance the environmental genomics toolbox to apply to future research on environmental health questions.

"This project would not be possible without the resources and support provided by Indiana University and SPEA and the expertise available on this campus, especially the technical capabilities of the IU Center for Genomics and Bioinformatics," Shaw said. "I'm also grateful for the NIEHS-funded training opportunities I have been afforded. Now we have some exciting work to do."
