Pacific Northwest National Laboratory staff at the Marine Sciences Laboratory are conducting research using biosentinels, which are living organisms that give early warning of the presence of a contaminant of interest. Here, tissue dissection is used to look at bioaccumulation of contaminants in aquatic organisms. Pacific Northwest National Laboratory is researching the application of genomics and proteomics to develop detection and measurement tools that can include biosentinels, biosensors, and biomarkers. This work is being done atthe Sequim Marine Research Operations center.
