Biology 401. Senior Seminar

Fall 2016

The Biology of Extreme Athletes
The biology senior seminar for majors in the class of 2017 will focus on the biology of extreme athletes. This will include examples from all types of organisms – from running cheetahs to flinging spores. Students will approach this topic from evolutionary, ecological, organismal, and cellular perspectives and consider how these abilities may be co-opted to ameliorate real-world problems.
