I'm Claire Jensen, a sophomore at Bryn Mawr. I am particularly interested in the evolution of life and also genetics, and would therefore like to learn more on those subjects. Why do some animals evolve strangely, like platypi (I never did learn whether or not that's the correct plural form)? How do genetic defects occur (especially in humans)? What causes animals to go extinct? (For example, I read an article recently about certain amphibians and bats dropping in number recently). I'm really excited about this course, and exploring some of these questions further.
