"Mitochondria: the powerhouses of life"

-Drs. Wendy Hood & Jeff Yap, Auburn University, Department of Biological Sciences

This talk will highlight how mitochondria, the small intracellular machines, power the lives of animals and other organisms. We will discuss the structure and function of mitochondria and the group's work. Their research suggests that these tiny powerhouses control relative reproductive performance, determine why some animals migrate and why some animals get fat easily, while others do not. We will also describe work that suggests how mitochondria change with exercise and age.
