Office: ML 114
Dr. Michael Little is
presently chairperson of the Department of Integrated Science and Technology
and a faculty member with 30 years of experience. He presently teaches
courses in the Integrated Science and Environmental Science degree programs.
He received Baccalaureate and Master of Science degrees from Marshall
University and a Ph.D. in Biology from the University of Louisville in 1983.
His initial research, in collaboration with Dr. John Wiley of the East
Carolina University School of Medicine, tracked the movement of mobile
ribosomal elements through the genomes of a diploid-tetraploid species
complex of treefrogs. He has recently worked with a group of undergraduate
and graduate students who have sequenced a portion of the mitochondrial
genome in a rare Appalachian fish, the Cheat Minnow. Current research
involves the use of GIS and digital technology to map the relationship
between stream structure and distribution of Appalachian fishes.
