This project could not have been possible without the support and help of many people.

Special thanks go out to:

Dan Perlman: Thank you. There are far too many things for us to specifically thank you for them individually but you are an amazing professor and a wonderful mentor/advisor to both of us.

Amy Kolosseus:
Your incredible tech support was very much appreciated. Without you we would never have been able to connect to the network let alone make this website.

Julie Miller: You are just fantastic. There is nothing else we can say. You are an awesome T.A. and friend and have been an invaluable part of this project.

Our Bio32 classmates: Thank you so much for your help, support and bug boxes.
What can we say other than you guys are fantastic and we will miss our bi-weekly meetings so much.

Our suite/roommates: Thank you for helping, keeping us sane and enduring spiders in our fridges and freezers. We know we did not pick the most conventional project and appreciate your lack of squeamishness! Pass the butter and spiders please?

Melissa Kosinski-Collins: Thank you so much for the use of your lab, cold room, vials, ethanol and your microscopes.

The Garrity Lab: Thank you for letting us invade your lab and use your photographic dissecting scope. It was such a huge improvement from shooting through a normal eye-piece.
