PUBLIC LECTURE, Dr. Dan Jacobson
The traits and diseases, of an organism, including its adaptation to its surrounding environment and the interactions with its microbiome, are controlled by patterns found in its genome as well as how molecules (proteins, metabolites, RNA, etc.) interact within cells and tissues. The cost of generating biological data is dropping exponentially, resulting in a flood of data that has opened a new era of systems biology in which there are unprecedented opportunities to gain insights into complex biological systems. These insights have applications in precision medicine, bioenergy, precision agriculture, ecosystem studies, and pandemic prevention among other disciplines.
Learn about the creative ways plants and animals adapt to their environments to survive - against predators and harsh environments -in an hour-long BGSU Biology Lab Tour: Extreme Adaptations.This interactive tour features Bowling Green State University faculty and students who will take you inside the BGSU greenhouse and herpetology and marine biology labs, to learn about these amazing plants and animals. Herpetologist Dr. Eileen Underwood, Horticulturalist Joe Baker, Extreme Environments Biologist Dr. Erin McMullin, Marine Biologist Dr.Michael McKay and Biology Instructor Matt Partin are presenters. Anyone can view this tour, but teachers and students in grades 7 -12 will be able to interact with and email or call in questions to be answered by BGSU faculty during this virtual tour. This hour-long presentation relates to Ohio academic content standards and is funded in part by a grant from the Northwest Ohio Center of Excellence in Science and Mathematics Education. Optional pre- and post-event activities will be provided by BGSU and may be facilitated by participating teachers.
Discover the wonders of the deep as WBGU-PBS and Bowling Green State University Marine Biology Instructor Matthew Partin and his students lead you on an interactive tour of the University?s Marine Biology Laboratory.
Bowling Green State University biology faculty will lead you on a live, interactive BioTour: Predators!, showcasing various organisms from their BGSU laboratories are their relation to Ohio academic content standards.
This virtual town hall was open to all students, faculty, staff, alumni, parents and families and friends. President Rogers and Provost Whitehead provided updates regarding the University's COVID-19 actions and plans and will answer your questions.
