Journal Club

As we discussed in class, journal articles will be assigned to 5 groups of students.

Group 1: Adaptive Value of Fever

Group 2:Biofilms & the human vermiform appendix

Group 3:Factor V Leiden Mutation

Group 4:Nausea in Pregnancy

Group 5:Osteoporosis

If you did not get assigned a group, please contact Melissa.

You will present these articles net week on Thursday. Since this is a group effort, I would recommend that each individual in the group take part in part of the presentation. Powerpoint is not necessary for these presentations. Most articles have more than one idea or topic that can be discussed. It is not necessary to discuss every bit of every paper. Groups can decide how to present and whether the study or review can be critiqued in any way. Please fell free to email us if you have questions.

On another note: This article is a recent piece in the LA Times that reports that the pace of human evolution is speeding up, in large part due to mismatch! Now aren’t you happy that you learned that concept from the last two weeks!
