The Center for Cell Plasticity and Organ Design alongside The Molecular, Cellular, and Developmental Biology and Ecology and Evolutionary Biology departments and the Cell and Molecular Biology CMB/Genetics Short Course Program are proud to present the first Fall 2021 installment of the Variations In Biology Seminar Series. The seminar is part of the Biosciences Scientific Research Initiative (Exploratory Opportunity).
The Model System revolution (which began in the 1980s and continues to this day) was driven by development of powerful genetic tools in a small group of organisms. While these popular models have driven major advances in many fields, they represent a narrow slice of biological diversity. Evolution has created a smorgasbord of variations in biology that can be exploited to address interdisciplinary questions in fields spanning Development, Cell Biology, Ecology and Evolutionary Biology. This seminar series aims to explore variations in biology and bring together audiences across the Biosciences at UM, to foster interdisciplinary dialogue.
