Final oral presentations

 

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 Kevin by Wednesday 3/2.  The requirements are that the paper must be:  1) biochemical in scope, 2) published in 2011, 3) a full paper, not a communication or review, and 4) something about which you are really excited.  For a more complete set of expectations, click the link below.  Remember, all students will be required to evaluate the others' presentations.  You should preview the evaluation for to get further clues as to the means of assessment.
