Journal Club

Hi folks, 

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
