Details

We will be talking about a DNA copying technique that does not require heating-cooling cycles.

The paper that we are going to discuss:
http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1249482/pdf/5-7400200.pdf

The agenda for the journal club:
- Short overview of the paper to understand the scope of this work.
- Go over the paper figure by figure. So everyone understand what exactly was done and how it was done.
- Free form discussion.

Previous reading of the paper is not required but much advised. It will help you to follow along. As well some prior knowledge of basic biological concepts will be very useful: what are genes, the central dogma of DNA -> RNA -> Proteins, and some general understanding of how DNA replication works. See you all soon! The Boslab team

Location:
The journal club is taking place in the MIT Center for Biomedical Engineering (500 Technology Square Cambridge), room 189 (to the left from the main entrance). It is a big building with rounded corners windows, to the left from Technology Square. The doors are automatically locked around 6:30PM and we will be waiting in the lobby to let people in. If you are lost or got late call (256)[masked], someone will let you in.
