The purpose of the journal club is to introduce beginning graduate students in Mathematical Biology to research through investigating and presenting some of the basic and classic papers in the field. We will have two groups this year: journal club for first year graduate students (JCI) which will primarily focus on classic papers; and journal club for second year graduate students (JCII) will focus on current research by local faculty.
For more information contact Brynja Kohler or Bob (B-Dawg) Guy .
Fall Semester, 2002
Journal Club I for 1st year students is course
6960 section 7, class # 14627
Journal Club II for more experienced students is course 6960 section 8, class # 14628
We normally meet THURSDAYS from 3-4:30pm in LCB 322, and alternate between JCI and JCII each week.
