BIOLOGY MASTERS STUDENTS

General biology master's students Camden Burton of Mission, Kansas, and Kirsten Lindsay-Hudak of Farmers Branch, Texas, culture plant tissue using samples of peace lily in the Harned Hall lab. They are among 24 MSU distance education students--many of whom are biology teachers at the high school level--who are completing the Capstone in Modern Biology course this summer as part of the master's in general biology degree program. A team-taught course involving eight faculty members within the Department of Biological Sciences, the course is the last one in an 11-course sequence that requires the students to come to campus for a 10-day intensive lab and field-based experience.
