Heb B study graphical abstract using paper and pens

6 Jan

One of the most fun things about teaching a grad seminar last semester was reading the homework assignments. Seriously!

Before I move on to the next semester (teaching genetics for undergrads), I wanted to share one more homework assignment. This one by Emily Chang, a graduate student in Scott Roy’s lab. The paper about viral quasispecies in Hep B was one of the harder ones for the students, but this graphical abstract very neatly sums up the main results. I also love that Emily used old fashioned paper and pens to make the abstract, knowing that using fancy drawing software isn’t needed to communicate science.
