Once all of the degrees are handed out and caps and gowns collected, many colleges and universities across the nation settle into a period of summer hibernation. Not Colgate. Although classes aren't in session, there's still plenty of work to be done. What follows is just a handful of the faculty-student research projects from the summer of 2005:

  • Pollinator Preference for Symmetrical Artificial Flowers
  • Effects of Variable Discharge Regimes on the Structure and Function of River Ecosystems
  • Characterization of a Novel Role for Nuclear Transport in Cell Cycle Control
  • Synthesis of C-Linked Glycopeptides
  • An Analytical Approach to the Derivatization of Single-Walled Carbon Nanotubes
  • Cloning, Overexpression, and Crystallization of periplasmic alpha-Carbonic anhydrase from Chlamydomonas reinhardtii
  • Deadlock Detection and Resolution Procedure in Java
  • Optical Variability of Quasars
  • Vortex-Breather Collisions
  • Incorporation of Political Affiliation into Self-Identity
  • An Analysis of Spatial Distribution of Soil Carbon
