Jan 21, 2021 | Online Learning, Tuesday | 0 comments

This week’s talk discusses the genetic and molecular details involved in researching the circadian rhythm through a model organism: the fruit fly. Presenter Cassandra Hui studied Biology, Sociology, and Psychology at Bridgewater College in Virginia, then relocated to Nevada in 2019 where she currently researches circadian rhythms and sleep as a neuroscience Ph.D. student at the University of Nevada, Reno.

*Note: due to the advanced and complex discussion of genetics, this talk is more suited for a High School audience.
