Announcement

  • Posted on 09/01 by Trent:
  1. Each participant please update the Wiki as required
  • Posted on 09/10 by Lingling:
  1. Lab rotation is a very important part of this course. It is recommended (required for PhD track) that every new student in Computational Biology track to do three rotations in research groups of his/her special interests. Student must contacted four professors and get their permissions to do a rotation in their group. If you have any questions in regard to choosing a lab, please feel free to talk to professor Rizzo and his students (Trent Balius and Lingling Jiang). Rizzo lab is located in Room 3-129, Math Tower.
  • Posted on 09/15 by Lingling:
  1. Since some students find that the presentation is scheduled close to their AMS535 presentation, I modified the schedule so that people can prepare one at a time.
  • Posted on 11/17 by Lingling:
  1. I set up the rotation presentation schedule. Please prepare for a 15 minutes talk about your first rotation.
  2. We won't have journal club next Wednesday as it will follow a Friday schedule then.

  • How should we behave as scientists?
  • How is science a social enterprise?
2010.02.03 Class discussion Scientific Integrity Course Scientific Misconduct

Stony Brook Lecture


Reading


Discussion

  • From Case Study 1: Was it appropriate for Dr. Chan to promise Samantha second authorship based on performing some assays?
  • From Case Study 1: It seems clear that there is a problem with Samantha's data. What should Julio do now?
  • How can the pressure to publish influence the conduct of research?
2010.02.10 Class discussion Scientific Integrity Course Mentorship

Stony Brook Lecture


Readings


Discussion

  • What qualities do you want in a mentor?
  • What are the challenges associated with being a mentor?
  • What does Professor Rubin mean when he says it is very important not to burn bridges?
