DRAFT: Cross-departmental workshop composed of students, postdocs, and faculty with shared interest in basic principles and emerging discoveries in DNA replication, recombination and repair. The goal of the meetings is to establish a challenging and interactive venue that will advance understanding of our individual projects and encourage collaborations

  • Posttranslational modifications-(SUMO, Ub, etc.) Henri suggested ...any ideas aboout who to invite?
  • Markus-Henri volunteers Markus to speak about stem cell R3

Day and time still acceptable? If not suggest alternative

  • consensus at meeting is to keep time and day the same
  • First Tuesday of every month, except summer when we consider increasing

Frequency of meetings

once a month was suggested. This gives us less than 12 meetings...like next week should be a meeting but is a Holiday. Discussion?

  • everyone agrees they want snacks, Alex suggests that the presenting person assign the snack, ca 15USD limit

Ideas for seminar speaker invitations

if you made a suggestion, please fill in the details.

  • Ted Weinert (yeast geneticist)...with Dan P as preview?--invited and accepted. watch BMB seminar page for dates.
  • Henri would like to have someone suggest a speaker for protein modifications (sumo, ub)
  • Johannes Walter?
  • Need someone who works on bacterial R3 systems Chi... recombination guy at Hutch?
  • Maria Jasin or postdoc
  • Representative for Replication; Ragu? Johannes, aladjam

When we have an invited speaker, should host lab hold a preview?

yes, everyone present thinks this is good.

  • Patrick Sung, Amanda

This is just a start, add more sections that might need discussion
