Assignment: Current Research in Genetics, 10 pts. Florida Genetics 2011, 9-10 November Due: email to Dr. Wayne by midnight 10 November Florida Genetics is an annual symposium sponsored by the UF Genetics Institute. There are talks on current research in genetics by outstanding external speakers, as well as a selection from some of the many excellent researchers here at UF. As part of your participation for the class, I would like you to attend one talk at the symposium and write up a brief summary of the talk you heard. To compensate you for your time, we will not hold a regular lecture on Thursday 10 November. There are talks during our regular class time, so I do not anticipate hardship in attending one. (For locations, check the schedule of talks, link below). If it’s more convenient for you, there is a live webcast of Carol Greider’s talk Wednesday from 5:00-6:00 pm. Dr. Greider is one of the 2009 Nobel Prize recipients for her work on telomeres, and she’ll be speaking about the role of telomeres in cancer.
This is the end of the preview.
