Mid-term oral presentation schedule

Oral presentations will be presented in the order given below (unless folks mutually agree to switch).  Each student will choose a paper from the journal linked next to her/his name and email it to Kevin by Monday 3/10.  The requirements are that the paper must be:  1) biochemical in scope, 2) published in 2014, 3) a full paper, not a communication or review, and 4) something about which you are really excited.  Remember, all students will be required to evaluate the others' presentations.  Detailed guidelines and evaluation rubrics can be viewed here.
