Walk into a University of Missouri lab, and you might find someone trying to cure cancer. Walk around the corner, and you'll find another researcher studying diabetes. A mile away, a student composes music while another works on a multimedia news project. Down the street, athletes train for big-time Big 12 sports. 

A lot happens at Mizzou in the course of a year. In that spirit, Mizzou Wire presents a year-in-review list for 2007 with enough links to keep you clicking, reading, viewing and listening through the New Year. This list is by no means comprehensive, so let us know what you think we left out.
