The focus of the journal club

Each time the Journal Club will be meeting, scientific articles related to data visualization and scientific graphics with a focus on biology, molecular biology and nanoscience will be discussed. Researchers interested in discussing articles within these academic areas are welcome to participate. Rikke Schmidt Kjærgaard is the scientific contact in relation to registration to the meetings of the Journal Club.

Frequency and readings for each meeting

The journal club will be meeting on the second Thursday in a month, beginning on 12 December 2013. The first meeting will have the format of a joined lunch meeting, where participants should bring their own lunch. The readings for each meeting will be announced on the AIAS website under the heading 'AIAS Journal Club' in the Events calender. The readings of the first meetings are 'O’Donoghue S I, et al. Visualization of macromolecular structures. Nature Methods 7(3 Suppl), 2010, pp. S42-55' and 'Goodsell, D & Johnson, G. Filling in the Gaps: Artistic License in Education and Outreach. PLoS Biology 5(12), 2007, pp. 2759-62.'
