Square One Systems Design of Jackson has received funding to help them conduct research that may assist the military in monitoring the effects its activities have on the local environment. Square One received a $5,000 award from the Wyoming Small Business Council to help them refine the technical writing and creation of preliminary design graphics and images and pursue a further award from the Department of Defense. Square One’s research will examine the use of “transgenic” zebrafish as indicators of environmental contamination.  The fish are genetically modified to fluoresce, or glow, when the water they’re in is not ideal, either due to the presence of contamination or the absence of important elements such as oxygen. The system would be a cost effective way to initially detect any issues that could later be addressed by more traditional chemical tests to pinpoint the problem.

  • Pelts are nearing prime conditions - November 26, 2014
    The days are getting shorter and the nights are getting longer. It’s the amount of daylight, and not the temperature, that causes wild animals to grow longer, thicker coats. If you’re a predator hunter or a trapper, that’s your cue. The pelts are coming into their prime right now, but that doesn’t mean they’re at […]
  • Very Windy in Many Areas, Developing Light to Moderate Snow - November 25, 2014
