Description:
The K-State Biology REU program provides opportunities for independent research for students that may not have these opportunities at their home institution. Research projects will address biological patterns observed in changing environments by examining underlying genetic, developmental, physiological, or ecological mechanisms. This 10-week program is hosted by Konza Prairie Biological Station and the Division of Biology at Kansas State University. In addition to independent research projects conducted under the guidance of experienced faculty mentors, participants will learn about modern approaches in ecology and evolutionary biology, attend professional development seminars, travel to important ecological sites and genomic centers in Kansas and Missouri, and have two opportunities to present their research.
