Presentation Topic

I would like to present on the symbiotic relationship between bioluminescent vibrio fischeri and the squid Euprymna Scolopes. The bacteria colonizes the light organ of the juvenile squid and feeds on nutrients supplied by the host while providing the squid with valuable bioluminescence for nocturnal activities.
-->Research on LitR, a transcriptional activator important to regulating luminescence as well as colonization of the light organ.
-->What is the role of Vibrio fischeri in the development and colonization of the light organ?
-->What are the effects of temperature and salinity on Vibrio fischeri?

  1. Lots of great research here. Let me know if you need help narrowing down the specific primary literature that you would like to cover.
