Proteins Journal Club
"You don't get much biological activity
from a rock"
T. O. Baldwin
Proteins Journal Club meets Fridays at noon (12:15) to discuss structure and function of proteins and macromolecular complexes. Recent topics have included enzymology, protein dynamics, allostery, and protein interaction networks. Students are encouraged to develop oral communication skills by presenting research topics from scientific literature and receive constructive feedback from fellow students and faculty.
Students also learn to communicate science to scientists outside the field of biochemistry and to non-scientists by blogging their presentation. The student blogs can be found on the Biochem Blog site.
