Details

The paper that we are going to discuss:
Incorporation of therapeutically modified bacteria into gut microbiota inhibits obesity
http://www.jci.org/articles/view/72517

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, especially the central dogma of DNA -> RNA -> Proteins.

Location:
We are changing the location of our Journal Club to our lab space in Somerville. So for those of you who never visited BosLab, this is another chance to see it!
