MARQUETTE – In conjunction with the Biology Seminar Series, Northern Michigan University will host “Tails of Mice and Mendel: the Genomics of a German House Mouse Hybrid Zone” at 4 p.m. Friday, Sept. 30, in the Mead Auditorium.

            Katherine Teeter from the department of ecology and evolutionary biology at the University of Michigan will be presenting.  Genomics, the study of all of the nucleotide sequences in the chromosomes of an organism, has the potential of offering methods for the treatment of some diseases.  The concept was discovered in the ‘80s and spawned genome research projects for several species in the ‘90s.

            This free event is open to the public and sponsored by the biology department.  For more information, contact them at 227-2310.
