Schedule for Spring Semester 2007

January 16, 2007

Organizational meeting, BioPharm 3rd. floor fishbowl, 4pm

January 23, 2007

Smythe, A.B., M.J. Sanderson, and S.A. Nadler. 2006. Nematode Small Subunit Phylogeny Correlates with Alignment Parameters. Systematic Biology 55(6): 972-992.Pdficon small.gif
Note from Carrie: Please note that this is DIFFERENT than the paper we decided on at Tuesday's organizational meeting.
This issue of Sys. Bio. is not yet available online therefore I will make a copy and put it in the EEB office. Those with a hard copy subscription of Sys. Bio. should have this issue. Note: for those with copies, Figures 3 and 8 should be in color.
