Congratulations are in order for undergraduates Jayashri Viswanathan and Naomi Murray. Both join the 2020-2021 class of Goldwater Scholars, a prestigious undergraduate award program that encourages students to pursue research careers in the natural sciences, engineering and mathematics.
Our DNA is built of base pairs, a spiral ladder of adenines, cytosines, guanines and thymines. In this molecular dance, adenine pairs with thymine and cytosine pairs with guanine. Undergraduate researcher Madeline Bright is trying to figure out just how damage to our DNA at the molecular level leads to disease-causing mutations.
A one-year-old student advising center has been a smash success for the College of Biological Sciences, student surveys show, with respondents reporting strong appreciation for a centralized location to receive academic guidance and support.
