Welcome to the inaugural McDaniel Biology summer research blog! Students and faculty working together on collaborative research will be blogging about their experiences here. The Jacobs lab will be studying the ecology and larval biology of sea squirts and decorator crabs at Friday Harbor Laboratories in Friday Harbor, Washington, while the Parrish lab will be studying the molecular biology of the slime mold Dictyostelium discoideum right here on the McDaniel College campus! We’re also hoping for guest blog posts from Dr. Morrison (on sabbatical, studying reptiles in Madagascar), Dr. Mitschler (on sabbatical, working with heritage breeds of sheep), Dr. McMillan (conducting botanical research in Maryland), and possibly several former research students. Stay tuned!
