Science is often interesting because it reliably generates ideas which organize the chaos of nature into easily identifiable patterns. At Denver Biolabs, ideas like evolution and biochemistry help us understand, and solve, most of the problems we encounter. But there is a world of ideas which are often missed when we consider biology. This presentation is a tour through the powerful world of ecology: its features, its influence on our lives, and the benefits understanding it offers.
Charlie, a long-time member of Denver Biolabs, has far reaching interests and knowledge in numerous scientific disciplines. He was a key member of our iGEM team last year, and has helped teach new members at workshops and in the lab.
We will provide some snacks and drinks for this talk, but please feel free to bring your dinner or a potluck item to share! See you there!
