BIOL 126. Biomechanics in Development and Regeneration


Biomechanics investigates the interplay of mechanical forces and biological processes across scales, from nanomachines to whole organisms.  This interplay is an important mechanism influencing key processes in embryonic development, disease, and regeneration of animals.  Research in biomechanics also serves as inspiration for bioengineering and regenerative medicine.  In this seminar, students will explore the primary literature in biomechanics through student-led discussions.  Focus areas may include development, regeneration, or animal behavior.  
Prerequisite: BIOL 027 or with permission of instructor.
