8/2015 - For the second year in a row, the LSU PPCP graduate students organized the Summer Technical Sharing Sessions. This year demonstrations/lectures were presented by 11 students. Topics ranged from proteomics to using computer programs to measure colony diameters. An important lesson learned was that techniques should be very different from the ones taught in labs and classes, otherwise there is little student interest and very low attendance. To encourage participation by students using common techniques, it may be better for students to give a presentation on how they used those techniques to answer important plant pathology questions.
The summer sharing sessions ran from 9 June to 17 August and the presenters and topics were the following:
|Nike Omolehin teaching Alejandra Jimenez how to rehydrate IPG stripes for proteomics. Pictured with Jorge Reyes and Cesear Escalante.||Ally Lunos demonstrating Assess to measure colony size.|
|Eduardo Chagas explaining the water column in plant vascular tissue.||Rebecca Sweany helping Alejandra Jimenez and other students suspend conidia.|
