BIO G 400: Undergraduate Biology Journal Club Welcome to BIO G 400 Section 6, Undergraduate Biology Journal Club! This new class is being piloted this semester in an initiative to help undergraduate biology majors become more familiar with the scientific literature in modern biology by learning to read, analyze, understand and present summaries of original research papers in biology. The concept of a “journal club” is not something new. However, most journal clubs on campus are intended for graduate students, post docs and faculty in a specific field. This new journal club was created with the freshman and sophomore biology majors in mind, who may or may not know what subfield of biology they are truly interested in yet. We hope that this course will help you not only become familiar with primary literature in biology, but to expose you to a wide variety of literature from several major fields in biology.
