Students please visit the UNLV REU Site: Mechanisms of Evolution website.
Undergraduate projects funded by the REU Site: Mechanisms of Evolution focus on biological processes that drive heritable change. The inspiration for this proposal is the celebrated essay, Nothing in Biology Makes Sense Except in the Light of Evolution by Theodosius Dobzhansky. The goals of this proposal are to provide undergraduates with hypothesis-based projects that investigate one or more mechanisms of evolution, promote careers in science and reinforce the connection between genetics and evolution.
Students from underrepresented groups and those that attend academic institutions with limited research opportunities, including two-year colleges are strongly encouraged to apply.
The grant provides a travel subsidy, housing and stipend.
