Reconstruction of Molecular Phylogeny (in Chinese) survey image

  • Date: 2018-04-09
    10:00~12:00
  • Speaker: Dr. Ai-Ling Hour (Assistant Professor, FJU, Dept. Life Science)
  • Place:Media Conference Room, Humanities and Social Science Building (3F)

The phylogeny among species or homologous genes can be approached by comparison analysis of molecular sequences based on the theory of population genetics and molecular evolution. The molecular evolutionary rates and the selection pressure of genes and organisms during evolution process can be estimated. There are several methods and programs available for phylogeny reconstructing, including distance based, parsimony and maximum-likelihood methods. I will introduce these methods and practice an example using MEGA7.

IPA advanced training course (in Chinese) survey image

IPA is software that helps researchers model, analyze, and understand the complex biological and chemical systems at the core of life science research. IPA has been broadly adopted by the life science research community and is cited in thousands of peer-reviewed journal articles.
IPA helps you understand complex omics data at multiple levels by integrating data from a variety of experimental platforms and providing insight into the molecular and chemical interactions, cellular phenotypes, and disease processes of your system. IPA provides insight into the causes of observed gene expression changes and into the predicted downstream biological effects of those changes.
Even if you have experimental data, you can use IPA to intelligently search the Ingenuity Knowledge Base for information on genes, proteins, chemicals, drugs, and molecular relationships to build biological models or get up to speed in a relevant area of research. IPA provides the right biological context to facilitate informed decision-making, advance research project design, and generate new testable hypotheses.

Outline:

a.Data Upload and How to Run a Core Analysis
b.Functional Interpretation in IPA
c.Comparison Analyses
d.Q&A

The “Universal Templates” for English Writing (in Chinese)

  • Date: 2018-07-17
    10:00 ~ 17:00
  • Speaker: Dr. Fu-Chou Cheng (Director, Stem Cell Center, Department of Medical Research, TVGH)
  • Place:B1C Conference Room, IBMS
The "Universal Templates " English writing method conveys the scientist’s philosophy and achievements. Following the journal's four-stage structure through clear, fluid English grammar and sentences, four logically supported sections are (1) introduction, (2) experimental, (3) results, and (4) discussion. These " Universal Templates " will enable readers to understand their contents. This lecture attempts to define the structural format of an English paper as specific templates and gradually fills into the paper according to these templates.

Publication of English academic papers is usually a lengthy academic activity. It is not only necessary to present the author’s unique insights, but also through experimental verification. At the same time, it is necessary to cite previously published papers of other scholars. Most Chinese scholars in the English writing are not aware of the expression of academic English. How to correctly cite the reference to the literature? Appropriate English writing guidance avoids academic plagiarism. The use of computer-aided grammar checkers and other software edits a fluent manuscript. These new “Universal Templates” writing method may provide Chinese scholars with a convenient writing method.
