VMS Journal Club

NDSU Microbiology
by NDSU Microbiology

The VMS GSA (Graduate Student Association) is starting a new, monthly journal club. A grad student will pick a paper to present, make that article available here through the department website, and then lead a discussion about the science. Grab a lunch and join in the fun with your thoughts, concerns, or just your presence! Everyone (undergrads/grads/faculty/staff/non-VMSers) is invited to attend.

The first VMS Journal Club will take place on Thursday, January 30 from 12:30-1:30 in Van Es 101. Come to seminar at 11am, then stay for lunch and a chat about something cool happening in the world of microbiology.

Take a look at the paper here. It's an incredibly controversial study (that was ultimately retracted) that should inspire an interesting discussion about research standards and ethics and the pressure to publish.
