*note, there will not be presentation of research data (the most exciting result) on this day

Research presentation: summarizes all research conducted over the summer. Format: 20-25 min plus 5 min for questions. Power point presentation should include background, research design, discussion, and conclusion.  Make sure to practice before presenting.

Literature Presentations: Students select current quadruplex and porphyrin related paper of interest to all lab members. Presentations length is 12 min + 3min for questions. Feel free to highlight only the most relevant or exciting parts of your selected paper.  Students should put the pdf version of the selected paper on Research folder on Wednesday noon before the group meeting. Everybody in the group is responsible for reading one paper in addition to their own. Feel free to ask me for paper suggestions.

Research Data: Another 30 min of our group meeting will be devoted to discussion of the lab research. Each student needs to prepare two slides - one with the most exciting result of the week (and be prepared to explain why it is so exciting using chalk board) and another with the tentative research plan for the coming week. Note, the slide on the most exciting result should not contain more than two figures/spectra.

Research paper: due at the end of the 9th week.
Kara, June and Jessica - the first draft is due on July 25th, at 5 pm

Supryia and Josh - the first draft is due Friday, August 1st, 5 pm
