If you are uncertain of the answer to any of these questions, or just need a refresher, this session is for you. Join KRC scientist and RTC co-director Dr. Katalin Szaszi and PhD candidate Michelle Dubinsky for a presentation on the fundamental aspects of designing your experiments. This session is open to trainees of all levels and will focus on wet bench experiments.
Preparing for Publication: How to Document Your Experiments and Organize Your Data – January 26, 2022
Transparency of data and reproducibility of experiments are crucial professional requirements for rigorous research studies. Generation of detailed records of procedures and protocols is also key for project planning. Recognizing the need for standardized reporting to maintain reproducibility, many journals are now using the Structured, Transparent, Accessible Reporting (STAR) approach. Thus, these professional standards for data reporting are crucial, yet they are often overlooked when discussing fundamentals of project planning. This interactive workshop will aim at filling this important gap by discussing requirements for record keeping, data reporting and the STAR system. We will also provide tips on how to ensure proper documentation of experimental details, and how to store and organize your data, key steps in project design and preparation for future publications.
