Journal Clubs, where technical and scientific papers are read and discussed, have a long tradition in science, going back to the 1800's. In this club, we'll read and discuss one paper, and I'll post two optional papers for further reading. We can discuss whether the research methods were sound, if the research is something we could replicate in a DIY lab, and what impact the research might have on future experiments. If you'd like to participate in the club via Google Hangout, email me and we'll add you to the hangout.
The Journal Club paper for 8/20 is posted on our google groups forum here
The Wet Lab is the only DIYBio Citizen Science facility in San Diego. We are a community of professional and citizen scientists who share a common interest in biology. Our mission is to educate people young and old about the stunning world of biology by making cutting edge biotechnology accessible to everyone from all walks of life. Through our collaborative efforts, knowledge sharing, and broad participation, we intend to develop open source protocols to share with our global community.
We are located at the Fab Lab in Makers Quarter. Come join the fun!
