Slamovits Lab @ Dalhousie University |  - We are in the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia Our research interests are related with molecular biology and evolution of eukaryotes and their genomes. In particular, we are interested in studying how genomes and cells evolve as a result of radical changes in lifestyle such as the […]

  • Slamovits Lab @ Dalhousie University |  Research - Our main research interests are Evolution and structure of the nuclear genomes of dinoflagellate protists Biology and evolution of apicomplexan parasites Evolution of eukaryotic organelles of endosymbiotic origin (mitochondria and chloroplasts) Genomics of Haplosporidia Collaborations We are also working in collaboration with these people: ANdrew Roger (Dalhousie), Mary Beth Saffo and Christopher Lane (University of Rhode Island), […]
  • Slamovits Lab @ Dalhousie University |  Dinoflagellate biology and evolution - DINOFLAGELLATES These critters are among the lab’s favourites. They exhibit many fascinating features and also lots of questions. Our research focuses mainly on their genes and genomes, in the context of the evolution of alveolates, the eukaryotic group dinoflagellates belong in.

  • Slamovits Lab @ Dalhousie University |  Oxyrrhis marina Functional Genomics - O. marina functional genomics – The OMFG Project O. marina is a dinoflagellate that lives in marine rocky shores around the world, usually where tide pools form.They are voracious predators: devouring bacteria and other protists seems to be their exclusive activity. O. marina has been used as a model to study various aspects of protist physiology, ecology […]
  • Slamovits Lab @ Dalhousie University |  Genome evolution in dinoflagellates - Dinoflagellates have very large genomes. So much that the smallest dinoflagellates genomes recorded are about as large as the human genome, whereas the largest are almost 10 times bigger! We don’t know much about them. Not even how many genes or how they are arranged or regulated. Moreover, the way in which DNA is packaged […]
  • Slamovits Lab @ Dalhousie University |  Biology and evolution of Apicomplexa - APICOMPLEXA is a diverse group of protists that includes thousands of obligate intracellular parasites. Members of this group are known to infect virtually every animal phyla, from land, sea and air. In many cases the relationship between the protist and its host is of relatively peaceful coexistence, but in others things go nasty and the […]
  • Slamovits Lab @ Dalhousie University |  Biology of Haplosporidia - What is HAPLOSPORIDIA? Haplosporidia is a group of protists (single-celled eukaryotes) that parasitize several kinds of marine invertebrates, including oysters, mussels, clams and crabs. They belong in the eukaryotic supergroup Rhizaria (Cercozoa), but no other details are currently known. It is a relatively small group, with only a handful of known genera, although more species […]

  • BiggDaddyWhite - Pc Doc spyware

    Arrived on time, but the program sent, had wrong acct. #, so had 2 call to pc head quarters to get a correct one, after that so far all is good.

  • A. Tu - Great product! Would recommend to any pet lover.

    Backed the project on Indiegogo, got it and absolutely loved it. Setting up was a breeze and interaction was very fun. Taking pictures and video recording worked pretty smoothly. The device caught my dog's attention right away, now everytime I turn on the device, the dog runs and waits by it. The only complaint (if any) is that more than one treat gets tossed out at once, but that's a pretty minor issue. Overall very happy with the purchase.

  • Jeff - Doesn't light up as indicated

    Using this tester, I was having a terrible time figuring out which sockets in my houses were grounded and which ones weren't, because the lights of this tester do NOT light up as indicated! After considerable trial and error, I discovered the following pattern for the lights for ungrounded sockets:
