Dr. Jason Stajich will give our dept. seminar on Feb 25. Seems like a good idea to read one of his papers.

Rosenblum, E.B., J.E. Stajich, N. Maddox, M.B. Eisen. Nov 4 2008. Global gene expression profiles for life stages of the deadly amphibian pathogen Batrachochytrium dendrobatidis. PNAS 105(44): 17034-17039. doi: 10.1073/pnas.0804173105

Please read the whole paper, and come prepared to present and discuss the section to which you are assigned (see below). Note the Materials & Methods section at the end (in smaller type) might be relevant to your bit. If you will not be able to attend on Wednesday at 1:25, please let us know so we can reassign your section.
