“I’m basically a disease detective, using DNAsequencing and patientdata to ﬁgure out whereoutbreaks start and how they spread.”
“Finding the cause of an outbreak is like playing detective - you startwith a list of suspect organisms and narrow that list down in the lab.”
“Many bioinformatics tools are black boxes - data goes in, an answer comes out, but we don’t know how it happened.”
NDSAJ*The receptor tyrosine kinase for NGF, gp140TrkA (where TrkA is a receptor tyrosine kinase forNGF, a product of the trk oncogene) suppresses programmed cell death and activates theexpression of the genes associated with neuronal differentiation by signalling through Shc/Grb2/m-Sos/Ras/Raf-1 [where Grb2 is the growth factor receptor-bound protein 2, Shc is anSH2 (Src homology 2)-containing adaptor protein that binds Grb2, m-Sos is a mammalianhomologue of the Drosophila son of sevenless gene (a GDP-releasing factor of Ras) and Raf isthe serine/threonine protein kinase family downstream of tyrosine kinases and upstream ofMEK], PLC-γ1 (phospholipase C-γ1)/PKC (protein kinase C), Gab1 (Grb2-associated binder-1)/PI3K (phosphoinositide 3-kinase)/Akt (a product of the v-akt oncogene ≡ protein kinase B) andCrk/C3G/Rap1/B-Raf (where Crk is an oncogene, adaptor protein containing SH2 and SH3domains and C3G is a guanine nucleotide-exchange factor that activates Rap1)… *NO DAMN SYMBOLS, ACRONYMS, OR JARGON
Minimize slide text• If you do not have your talk written out word-for-word on screen like this, you will not be tempted to read it our word for word, like I am doing right now• Your audience will be reading, not listening to you and you never want them not listening• Also it means you are not a very good presenter
Pseudomonas aeruginosa OprM• OprM is an outer membrane protein from Pseudomonas aeruginosa.• It has an outer membrane beta-barrel domain and a periplasmic alpha-helical domain.• It is involved in antibiotic efflux.• It interacts with MexA and MexB.
Pseudomonas aeruginosa OprM forms an efﬂux pump with MexA and MexB Outer membrane beta-barrel Periplasmic alpha-helix
USE SLIDE TITLES AS SUMMARIES• All this other text• And that picture over there• Can be summed up• With a catchy headline• That your audience• Can scribble in their notes• To capture what you said•
