What a delight to see so many Trinity Women deeply engaged in the science of genetics in O’Connor Auditorium this week! The students in Biology 241: Introductory Genetics gave an outstanding lesson to all visitors to the Genetics Timeline Project Poster session.
In just a few short minutes as I stopped at the various posters, the student presenters helped me to learn more about the Human Genome Project, the issues the early geneticists faced, and the important ways that genetics research addresses modern challenges like solving the great riddles of cancer.

Earlier in the day on Monday, another group of Dr. Moitra’s students presented their amazing works of fiction based on scientific principles. This tremendous display of creative genius by the Evolution students is a remarkably powerful example of the ways in which science engages the imagination and weaves through many disciplines. Enjoy this slideshow with excerpts of the students’ short stories: Fiction Reading by Evolution Students
These brief examples show the tremendous talent of Trinity’s students and faculty in the sciences. Thank you to Dr. Moitra and the students for sharing your talent with the Trinity community!
