- The goal of this is to get us all exposed to a set of interesting systems biology example projects, and give you practice distilling and presenting such material.
- Post your presentation (including .ppt file and talking notes) by 6pm on Wednesday, February 13 to your project page below so that the instructor can review them beforehand.
- We’ll have 20 minutes for each presentation. Allow 15 minutes for presentation and 3-5 minutes for questions.
Your presentation should address the following content/questions:
- What was the design concept of the engineered biological system?
- Describe the key elements of the engineered system (parts and how they work together)
- What is the novelty of the designed system?
- Design concept?
- Are the designed parts particularly novel?
- Integration of existing parts?
- Which of the following areas did the project impact? How much?
- Science. Is it testing out a basic science hypothesis?
- Technology. Developing something that could end up as a useful technology?
- Optional: Possible impact on the VGEM project. Are there ways the project suggests something to you about a tool or concept that could be used for the summer project? Could the project, or a component of it be a germ of a VGEM project idea? Or the tools be used in the VGEM project?
An effective presentation will have:
- Clear slides
- Effective presentation style (vocabulary, inflection, gestures, use of pointer)
