Synthesis and properties of a [2.2.2]-diazabicyclic polymer

Polymers represent a general class of molecules consisting of many repeated units, or monomers. Traditionally, polymers consist of hydrocarbon monomers and can vary drastically in complexity and functionality. Due to their high molecular weight and chain-like structure, polymers have unique properties that differ significantly from their monomer counterparts, including durability and malleability. For this reason, polymers are used in many everyday products.

Speciation of Yeast

While groundbreaking discoveries have been made in plant and animal speciations, studies focusing on the evolution of microbial species have been limited. Microbial species such as yeast play an important role in our world but their speciation processes are challenging to study because of their microscopic size.
