14feb7:00 pm8:30 pmBiology: It's Always More Complicated Than You ThinkFaculty Explorations

Event Details

It’s simple biology” is a phrase you hear in popular speech over and over again, but biology is anything but straightforward.  As living organisms evolved over millions of years as collections of chemicals made of primarily 6 different elements, the processes that sustain life have developed to impressive levels of complications throughout many series of mutations and selections.  A common refrain in my biology classes is, “it’s always more complicated that it seems,” and in this hour, we will dive into some of the biological “facts” that are taught as absolute and explore the ways in which there’s always more to the biological story and see that nothing found in “myriad forms wonderful and beautiful” is simple and straightforward as it might seem.
