Researcher Drs Jungblut (Natural History Museum, London, UK) and Vincent (Laval University, CEN, Quebec, Canada) will be conducting several field research activities for up to 10 days over the summer and early fall of 2017. Several research activities will be carried in the freshwater lakes and streams such as the measurement of physical and chemical characteristics of the water and collection of cyanobacteria, microbial mats and water samples on day trips to Greiner Watershed from CHARS. The aim of the project is to collect samples that will allow to compare modern cyanobacteria with samples collected on Ellesmere Island by Captain Nares (British Arctic Expedition) in 1875-76 using DNA sequencing. The DNA sequencing will be used to identify genome traits that could be used as indicators for Arctic freshwater ecosystems health and environmental change.
