The Biology Year 2017 in Photos

As usual, it has been an incredibly active year at the department. To illustrate this, I have chosen some of the photos I have. And this is only the part that I have participated in, or got hold of photos from. I know that there has been a lot more going on.

Let’s continue like this next year too! See you 2018.

Have a Happy New Year,
Inger (who is responsible for most of the photos)
