The proteome of the cave bear

By Laurel Oldach

If a peptide mass spectrum is like a jigsaw puzzle, then a genome is the picture that researchers use to piece things together. But what do you do when there’s no picture to use as a guide?

The Art of Science Communication

The Art of Science Communication is an online course that provides fundamental training in science communication, focusing on how to present science to a nonexpert audience in a formal setting, such as a public lecture.

Using video lectures, background material, virtual mentoring and discussions, the course covers the important components of what makes for a successful presentation, including messaging, generating interest and engaging with the audience.

The course is open to all scientists and STEM professionals.
