Weekly Meeting Formats

Weekly presentation for one hour around lunch-time.
  • Presentations will have one of the following formats:
    1. Presentation of an omics analysis related published paper(s) by one or more students, postdocs, staff, or faculty.
      • A preference will be given for students and then postdocs to present.
    2. Presentation by an invited outside speaker in omics technology, application, and/or analysis.
      • Roughly once a month or 3 per semester.
    3. Presentation by faculty, staff, or postdoc of an omics-integration research project to foster collaboration and solicit feedback.
    4. Presentation by faculty or staff of an omics-integration related grant proposal for critique.
    5. Workshop presentation by an expert (faculty, staff, and/or graduate student) in the use of a tool, method, or skill that is of general interest.

Journal Club Format

These are intended to present, discuss, and critique new methods, results, etc, in specific omics and omics-integration related research areas.

A suggested presentation format with a target length of 45 minutes, which leaves 15 minutes for discussion:
  1. Title that includes a reference for the focal paper(s) of the presentation.
  2. Outline that lays out what will be presented.

    • Include the relevance/significance of the presented paper(s).

  6. Presenter's conclusions about the quality and usefulness of the presented material.
    • This is a critique of the presented material, but salient critiques may be sprinkled throughout the presentation.
    • May want to reiterate the relevance/significance of the presented material.

Research Project Format

These presentations are meant for individuals to communicate:
  • Overall research programs.
  • Novel results in a lab or an individual research project.
  • Ask for assistance and/or collaboration on experimental design, analysis, etc.

A suggested presentation format with a target length of 40 minutes, which leaves 20 minutes for discussion:
  1. Title that includes a reference of the presented research.

Workshop Format

Workshop formats are still being discussed. We may spin off workshops on specific topics of interest for the following purposes:
  1. To provide training in specific skills.
  2. To foster collaborations on specific topics.
  3. To provide more in-depth exposure and discussion of a topic.
