RHD Alleles in Prenatal Patients from Northern Canada
Principal Investigator: Hannon, Judith L
Licenced Year(s): 2014 2013 2012 2011 2006
Summary: The objectives of this research project are to confirm that the RhD phenotype is appropriately assigned in a population of prenatal patients that has not been studied for the presence of variant RhD gene alleles that would require them to be assigned an Rh-negative status and treated with Rh immune globulin. Samples will be selected for analysis among prenatal samples from the Northwest Territo...


Assessment of the Boloria chariclea complex
Principal Investigator: Leski, Michael L
Licenced Year(s): 2013 2011
Summary: The primary objective of this project is to collect B. chariclea arctica from sites in the Yukon and Northwest Territories. A network of haplotypes will be constructed, based on the mitochondrial cytochrome c oxidase subunit I (COI) gene, and a mismatch analysis will be performed to determine if genetic structure has been influenced by a sudden expansion in population size or long term stability. ...


Non-toxic arsenic in mushrooms and plants from Yellowknife
Principal Investigator: Reimer, Kenneth J.
Licenced Year(s): 2012
Summary: The objectives of this research is to: determine total arsenic and arsenic species in edible and non-edible mushrooms from contaminated and uncontaminated locations (mine properties and roadsides/parks); determine total arsenic and arsenic species in plants including Labrador tea, horsetails, buffaloberry, fireweed and berries (if available) from contaminated and uncontaminated locations (mine pro...


Evolution of Arctic Lampreys
Principal Investigator: Renaud, Claude B.
Licenced Year(s): 2012
Summary: The purpose of this study is to know more about the lampreys of NWT. It is part of a larger scale study of lampreys of the genus Lethenteron across the northern hemisphere (Eurasia and North America). In the Northwest Territories (NWT) part of the study our objectives are: 1- To collect a total of about 30 larvae at least 60 mm in total length for each of the two species from localities where a...


Ecological Structure of Northern Arthropods: Adaptation to a Changing Environment
Principal Investigator: Buddle, Chris
Licenced Year(s): 2012 2011
Summary: The objectives of this research project are: (1) To test how and to what degree the structure of arthropod communities changes between the northern boreal (Norman Wells and Yellowknife, NT), sub arctic (Ogilvie Mountains, YT, and Kugluktuk, NU), and high arctic (Aulavik National Park, NT, and Cambridge Bay, NU) zones. This will provide a contemporary geographic profile of species and group distri...


Population Inventory of Hairy Rockcress (Braya pilosa): NWT’s rarest species of global importance
Principal Investigator: Carriere, Suzanne
Licenced Year(s): 2011
Summary: The focus of this study will be to determining the area of occupancy of the plant Hairy Rockcress (Braya pilosa) in the NWT, the habitat requirements of the species, to collect viable seeds for genetic studies and potential rescue of genetic material if extinction is imminent, and to estimate the rates of shore loss for each sub-population. Ground surveys will be conducted within walking or bo...


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...

Molecular analysis of evolutionary change in stickleback populations
Principal Investigator: Shapiro, Michael D.
Licenced Year(s): 2010 2008 2007 2005 2004 2002 2001 2000
Summary: The researcher plans to collect stickleback fish from Fox Holes Lakes. These fish will be used for laboratory experiments to determine the genes that control the number, shapes, and sizes of bones in the skeleton. Two members of the research team will travel to Ft. Smith for approximately 5 days during the broader time interval listed (May 1 - June 30 of each year). The most likely time for our...
