The Monday EEMB departmental seminar at 4pm in the Marine Science Building auditorium, entitled "Evolution of Muscle Energetics", will be presented by Chris Moyes, a professor at Queens University in Canada. Much of the data to be presented will be about fish, although there may be some mention of other species, possibly even humans. Chris Moyes works in the field of comparative biochemistry and physiology and has done research on diverse subjects including the bioenergetics of exercise, biochemical adaptation to temperature, metabolic scaling, and the genetic regulation of mitochondrial content in muscles. He is the coauthor (with Patricia Schulte) of a highly-regarded and widely used textbook of animal physiology.
