This laboratory course uses both classical and cutting-edge experimental techniques to uncover aspects of insect biology. We will conduct a series of novel experiments on diapausing and non-diapausing model insects to show physiological and molecular mechanisms used to survive winter. The course goal is to create a student co-authored manuscript to submit to the Journal of Insect Physiology. Prereq or concur: 6310.
