course basics
Course Basics
  • BINF704 Fall 2014
  • INSTRUCTOR - Jeff Solka Ph.D., jlsolka@gmail.com, 540-809-9799
  • OFFICE HOURS – By appointment.PLACE AND TIME - Tuesday from 5:30-7:00 pm PURPOSE of the COURSEThis course serves to train students in understanding scientific presentations and publications while simultaneously giving them a rudimentary capability to craft a colloquium style presentation based on a journal article.EXPECTATIONS - Students are expected to attend online student presentations, to make a presentation online on a journal paper as chosen by them, watch 7 online presentations, and answer quizzes on 5 of them and provide write-up on 2 of them. Ideally the paper should be related to the student's ongoing research and the student is free to present on ongoing research. Alternatively students can present on a paper of the professor's choosing. Students will present in teams of 2 or more where each team will have 45 minutes to present including time for questions. These presentations will be coordinated remotely using Adobe Connect. It is expected that student's will allow 15-20 minutes for questions and that the question and answer portion of the talk will be thorough.. In addition students are expected to submit 2 in-depth write-ups, 7-10 pages, on external speaker presentations. One of these will be due by 6:00 pm October 15,2014 and one will be due by 6:00 pm Dec. 6, 2014. Finally students are expected to evaluate each of the student presentations on a 100 point scale as follows
