Presentation Techniques for Scientists
Description: Lecturers
• Sarah Jessop, Associate Director for Speaking Instruction, Derek Bok Center for Teaching and Learning, Harvard University
• Fred Winston, Professor of Genetics, Harvard Medical School

Presentations are an essential part of a scientist’s career. From pre-qualifying exams to job talks, seminars, and classroom teaching, it is important to effectively communicate one’s ideas to a wide range of audiences. During the first two sessions of this course we will discuss many aspects of an effective scientific presentation including developing oral communication techniques, creating clear visual aids, and developing talks for different audiences. Registered students will then put these skills to work the following week by creating and delivering a brief practice presentation. Registered students are expected to attend both lecture sessions and at least one of the practice presentation sessions. At the end of the course students will have gained skills they can apply to future presentations.

Nanocourse: Functional Genomics and Screening
Description: Course Lecturers:
• Dr. Steve Elledge, Professor of Genetics, Harvard Medical School
• Dr. Norbert Perrimon, Professor of Genetics, Harvard Medical School
• Dr. Stephanie Mohr, Director of the Drosophila RNAi Screening Center, Co-Director of the Genome Engineering Production Group, and Coordinator of the DF/HCC Collaborative RNAi Core, Harvard Medical School
• Dr. Jen Smith, Assistant Director of the ICCB-Longwood Screening Facility, Harvard Medical School
• Dr. Caroline Shamu, Director ICCB-Longwood Screening Facility, Harvard Medical School

Cultured cells provide a powerful system for studying fundamental problems in topics such as signal transduction, cell differentiation and physiology. Several approaches can be used to interrogate gene function at genome-wide scale in cultured cells, including established techniques such as RNA interference (RNAi) and over-expression, and newer techniques such as the use of miRNA mimics and inhibitors. In addition, the new genome engineering technologies, including the CRISPR/Cas system, can be used to modify cell lines (e.g. for assay development), to screen at high-throughput, and to follow up on screen candidates. This nanocourse will introduce the types of cell-based assays that can be performed at high-throughput scale; the types of reagents and genome-scale reagent libraries available to interrogate protein-coding and non-coding genes; and how bioinformatics and experimental approaches are used to analyze, verify and validate screen data. We will discuss advantages and caveats to the approaches presented, as well as discuss how RNAi and the CRIPSR/Cas system can be used in a complementary fashion to interrogate specific cell functions and generate high-confidence results.
