MARQUETTE – As part of the Biology Seminar Series, Northern Michigan University will host “Using Salivary Amylase to Identify Peromyscus Species” at 4 p.m. Friday, Dec. 9, in room 2202 of New Science Facility.
Salivary amylase is a digestive enzyme used to break down long-chain carbohydrates. Kim Miedema, a second-year master’s candidate at NMU, will discuss how this enzyme can be analyzed to identify members of the peromyscus species, or deer mice.
This free event is open to the public. For more information, contact Miedema at 227-1743.
