JOURNAL CLUBS

Journal Clubs are provided weekly for graduate students as an opportunity to present journal articles of their choice and share them with their colleagues and instructors.  It serves as a practice ground  for speaking to a scientific audience.  Journal clubs are a forum for learning and for the expansion of scientific knowledge in ecology, evolution and behavior, and  Molecular Cell Biology literature.

EEB Journal Club 

Ecology, Evolution and Behavior Journal Club
BIOL 514 (Sections 1 and 2)

Journal Club provides a relaxed environment for graduate students to research and present a journal article of their choosing to an audience of peers and professors. It serves as practice grounds for speaking to a scientific audience.  Learning to critically read, write, and evaluate scientific papers is one of the most important long-term skills required for success in science, both during and after graduate school. Through analysis of published papers, we hope that students will gain an understanding of the different elements of theory, experimental design, analysis, and writing that are essential for scientific communication and successful publication. Above all, journal club should be a forum for learning and for the expansion of scientific knowledge in ecology, evolution, and behavior. 

MCB Journal Club

Molecular and Cell Biology
BIOL 516 (Sections 1 and 2)

This journal club focuses on Molecular Cell Biology literature. (MCB)  stands for Molecular and Cell Biology. This term refers to faculty and students with interests centrally in molecular, cell, and neural biology (including biochemical, genetic, evo-devo, computational, applied health, and related approaches)

BIOCOFFEE

BIOcoffee runs during the summer. It is a weekly summertime gathering of faculty, staff, students, postdocs, and visitors. It is a great opportunity to mingle with friends, new and old,  and catch up with old friends while enjoying a fabulous breakfast of coffee and bagels. 

BOGS Group Pic

The purpose of this organization is to connect students in the Biology department graduate program, organize events for members of the Biology department, and liaise between students, faculty, and other areas of academic interest across campus.
