The Genographic Project: Anthropological Genetic Analyses of Indigenous Human Populations of North America - South Slave and DehCho
Principal Investigator: Schurr, Theodore G
Licenced Year(s): 2011 2010 2009
Summary: In this project, the ancestry and history of the Aboriginal populations of the NWT will be explored through the analysis of genetic diversity in these communities. Through this DNA analysis, the origin and diversity of these aboriginal people will be investigated and their relationship to other aboriginal peoples of Canada and Alaska will be assessed. Overall, this approach will generate new insi...

Field Collections of Braya and Associated Plant Species
Principal Investigator: Harris, James
Licenced Year(s): 2004
Summary: The researchers will travel to Cape Bathurst Peninsula by charter from Inuvik and spend 2-3 days. They will collect a small number of representative specimens of Braya populations along with a general collection of associated plant species. All plant spe...


Distribution of Dark-Celled Fungal Root Endophytes Along an Arctic to Boreal Latitudinal Gradient
Principal Investigator: Piercey, Melissa
Licenced Year(s): 2000
Summary: Roots of plants inhabiting cold-stressed environments are often colonized by vegetatively reproducing fungi. The researcher will examine the genetic variation within and among populations of Phialocephala fortinii P. along a latitudinal gradient encompassing the boreal, subarctic and arctic zones in Northern Canada. The researcher will travel from Yellowknife to 3 study sites surrounding Great ...


Distribution and Physiological Adaptations of Stream Macroalgae in the High Arctic.
Principal Investigator: Sheath, Robert
Licenced Year(s): 1994 1992
Summary: Microscopic algae in tundra streams constitute the base of food chains in these habitats yet they are poorly studied. Their composition appears to be an extension of a portion of the temperate flora. The research will continue a survey of these species and an examination of their physiological adaptations to such a stressful habitat....


Beaufort Sea beluga satellite tagging program
Principal Investigator: Richard, Pierre
Licenced Year(s): 1993
Summary: Beluga whales will be herded into shallow waters with boats and kept there for a short period of time. Whale size and sex will be determined and a small sample of skin will be taken for DNA analysis. Satellite tags will be attached to the dorsal ridge area of ten whales. These tags will allow the researchers to locate the whales' movements and diving patterns over the next several months....


Finding a gene for Bardet-Biedl Syndrom
Principal Investigator: Musarella, Maria A.
Licenced Year(s): 1992
Summary: We plan to study Bardet-Biedl families (with at least 2 affected children) in order to determine if and how the disease is genetically linked. By following the inheritance of a DNA marker in affected families, it is possible to determine whether the disease is gene genetically linked to the DNA marker. A systematic screening of DNA markers (that are distributed over the 22 chromosomes) should th...


Mitochondrial DNA Diversity in High-Arctic Populations of Daphnia pulex (water fleas)
Principal Investigator: Crease, Teresa
Licenced Year(s): 1992
Summary: The researcher and her team will collect Daphnia pulex (water flea) samples and maintain them in culture to obtain sufficient material for genetic analysis....


Population Genetics Study of Northern Insect Populations
Principal Investigator: Schwert, Donald P.
Licenced Year(s): 1995 1992
Summary: The Scientists will collect insects, mostly Coleoptera (beetles). The specimens will be utilized for population genetics analyses of northern insect populations....
