crisscrossing Science Episode 067: The Best Gift Your Mother Gave You

In this episode, Mike Crosser (professor of physics at Linfield College) and Chad Tillberg (professor of biology at Linfield College) invite Dr. Megan Bestwick (assistant professor of chemistry at Linfield College) to discuss her primary research topic, mitochondria. Mitochondria are organelles within our cells that ultimately create the energy currency that our cells need in order to do anything. Crosser, Tillberg, and Bestwick discuss the processes of mitochondria, how they are useful in forensics, and where they came from.
