Pheromone Following Traits as a Measure of the Evolutionary Efficiency of Eusociality of Ants [E]
Use DNA Sequencing to Trace the Blue Whale's Evolutionary Tree [E]
Analyze evolutionary links among fish, birds, reptiles, amphibians, and mammals through protein fingerprinting (protein electrohporesis). [E]
Hunt for M&M prey in a series of different habitats to discover which M&M's survive in each habitat and why. [E]
Test whether or not a layer of blubber is a helpful adaptation for cold-water environments [E]
Find and compare evolutionary differences among different animals based on their proteins. [E]
The kangaroo rat and its adaptations for survival in a desert habitat [E] [P]
How Reptiles adapt to their environment [E]
The Chemical Adaptations of Marine Algae in Stressed Environments [E]
Adaptive Dorsal Patterning and Morphological Variation in the Salamander Ensatina klauberi [E]
Investigate the survivablity and adaptive behavior of the isopod Armadillidium vulgare and see what would happen to these bugs if they were displaced from their main living area under rocks or brush. [E]
Generational Adaptation of Coral to Variables in a Simulated Reef Environment [E]
Biochemistry
Investigate Native Plant Evolution with Chloroplast Sequencing [E]
Find and compare evolutionary differences among different animals based on their proteins. [E]
Explore functions of an unknown protein using computational methods; the connection between how a protein performs its job(s) and how its corresponding DNA sequence changes throughout evolution; the specific functions of a protein, based only on its amino acid (protein) sequence [E]
Analyze evolutionary links among fish, birds, reptiles, amphibians, and mammals through protein fingerprinting (protein electrohporesis). [E]
Directed evolution of alkane degrading enzymes for improved activity on natural and high molecular weight substrates. [P]
Repeat Luria-Delbrück experiment (Demonstrate that in bacteria, genetic mutations arise in the absence of selection, rather than being a response to selection. Therefore, Darwin's theory of natural selection acting on random mutations applies to bacteria as well as to higher organisms.) [E]
Botany
Charles Darwin: Orchids and Evolution [E]
Investigate Native Plant Evolution with Chloroplast Sequencing [E]
Evolutionary Relationships among Rust Fungi in the Genus Melampsora [E]
Fern Distribution and Diversity in Australia [E]
Phylogenetic relationships of the Australasian citrus: the Citreae tribe in a world context. [E]
Phylogeny in the Red Ironbarks (Eucalyptus series Siderophloiae) [E]
Genetics
Investigate Native Plant Evolution with Chloroplast Sequencing [E]
Use DNA Sequencing to Trace the Blue Whale's Evolutionary Tree [E]
A Study on the Molecular Evolution of Voltage-Sensitive Ion Channel Genes [E] [E]
Rhizobia-genetic mutation and natural adaptation (Bacteria Evolution) [P]
Microbiology
Find how complexity can be produced through Natural Selection and Evolution; will higher mutation rates allow for faster adaptation? [E]
Philosophy
Is Creationism and Intelligent Design Science? [E] [E] [E] [E]
Research the controversy "intelligent design" vs. "evolutionary biology" [E]
Linguistics
Find out if certain symbolic characteristics, like sharpness and roundedness, can cross language barriers. [E]
Astronomy
Determining which Solar System object(s) would be most viable during various stages of stellar evolution [E]
The Formation, Evolution and Death of Stars [P]
Computer Sciences
Simulate the process of evolution by natural selection and environmental factors. [P]
A Dynamic Analog Concurrently-Processed Adaptive Neural Network Chip [E] [P]
Human Anatomy
Contingent Color/Edge Adaptation: McCollough Effect [E] [E]
