Jessica Rogge's research highlighted in JEB and on multiple websites
Boston University undergraduate Jessica Rogge is receiving a lot of attention these days. The research that she conducted with associate professor Karen Warkentin, has not only been featured on the cover the Journal of Experimental Biology, but it has also been picked up by numerous online science websites, such as Science Daily, Red Orbit, and e! Science News. While working at the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute's laboratories in Gamboa, Panama, they discovered that frog embryos at a very early developmental stage actively respond to conditions in their egg, behaviorally positioning themselves to improve oxygen uptake. This early response of embryos to their environment may be critical for normal development.
