Dr. Chris Martyniuk's laboratory uses environmental transcriptomics and proteomics and associates molecular changes to higher levels of biological organization to achieve this. In addition, his research utilizes bioinformatics to integrate molecular data to better link molecular initiating events to adverse outcomes in aquatic organisms, for example decreased reproductive output or stress. Key words associated with his research include genomics, environmental impacts, fish, reproductive physiology, water protection, aquatic toxicology, protein biotechnology, bioinformatics, toxicity testing, and bioassays.
