Bioinformatics Journal Club (2S)

In this seminar we read and discuss current research articles from different fields in bioinformatics. Each participant must present in few minutes two articles of their choice one week before their presentation. The group then votes which article will be discussed in detail in the subsequent week. To this end, the participant who proposed the article will take the lead of the discussion. All participants must read the paper and prepare themselves for the discussion.

The topics of presented papers should be related to bioinformatics, biology, or computer science.

This year we have a different format for choosing the papers, called the “Secret Santa Journal Club”. Everybody picks a paper that s/he always wanted/had to read but never did. Them, writes the reference on a piece of paper. We put all papers in a bag and everybody pulls one, and this paper will then be presented by the non-expert who pulled it from the bag. The drawing will be on 24.10.2016.
