Our Biology students have been hard at work researching and writing and their presentations for next week’s graduate Scholarly Forum. For the past few years, the department of biology has used the forum as a perfect backdrop to showcase their student’s work. 

On Wednesday, their session will feature 16 papers with topics such as: 

  • Avian Historical DNA a Tool for Evaluation of Long Term Population Movement, Gregory O. Cain, (Faculty Sponsor, Dr Igor V. Ovtchinnikov) Department of Biology
  • Representation of the Scientific Process in Biology Textbooks,  Kayla Holzer (Faculty Sponsor, Dr Jeffrey Carmichael) Department of Biology

Their session kicks off at 8am in the Badlands Room, and the full schedule and abstracts can be found on here.
