This fall, Boise State University enrolled over 19,000 students, including 2,000 graduate students. This makes it the largest university in the state.
In the Biology Department at BSU, professors and students investigate topics including raptor migration, carbon sequestration in soil, new drugs for inflammatory diseases, genetics of invasive plants, bone development, and the genetics of rare plants.
Professor Jim Smith and graduate student Danielle Clay have found that a rare plant, which grows only in an area the size of the BSU campus, has an unusual type of hybrid origin.
I wrote about it for BSU's Division of Research and Economic Development.
