h3. 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 3/9.  The requirements are that the paper must be:  1) biochemical in scope, 2) published in 2015, 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|^MidtermOral_Guidelines_15.pdf].
