Surprisingly, that tiny organism,
Saccharomyces cerevisiae may hold the key to understanding the link
between specific genetic markers and cellular oxidative stress, which is thought
to be a contributing factor to development of these diseases.
And in the Ozarks Biology program, you may find yourself working one-on-one
with your professor to conduct your own research on this tiny fungus, on fruit
flies, or on larger plants or animals.
That's the thing about this biology program...it's a very "hands-on" program
where you'll be encouraged to explore the life sciences through your own
research, special projects, and internships.
While you'll be working with professors who are nationally recognized
experts in their fields, unlike the professors at many bigger schools, they'll
encourage you to get actively involved in learning about biology - even
from your first semester in the program if you want.
By the time you graduate from Ozarks, you'll have the knowledge and the
drive to excel, no matter where your path leads!
