The scope of the 2016 Biology Graduate Research Forum (BGRF) stretched from researching the survival of microbes in Antarctic lakes to Dengue fever in Colombia and covered topics from behavioural isolation in Drosophila, to novel enzyme assays, to how keeping mice in wild or laboratory environments can influence genomic diversity.
