CA1 Peer Learning Presentation Guidelines
For LSM3241 CA1, each student is required to present on a given programming language (Perl or MySQL or see list of topics) assigned to you. The presentation should be no longer than 45 minutes. The presentation takes the form of a peer learning/discussion session where the presenting student leads a teaching/discussion session about the programming language/topic assigned.
Each presenter is also required to create a wiki page on the presentation topic. The presentation and wiki page is part of CA1 which is worth 10% of the LSM3241 module grade.
- (Brief) introduction to the programming language
- Getting started with the programming language
- Basic commands
- Inclusion of hands-on examples/exercises (preferably bioinformatics related) for the other students to attempt during practical
- Tricks and Tips
Please note that this list is not exhaustive and presenters are reminded to approach their assigned TAs for discussion on their presentation scope.
Checklist before CA1 presentation
Before your presentation, please make sure that you have:
- Uploaded your presentation slides and materials to the IVLE CA1 submission workbin
- Completed your wiki page
Choose a topic among those commonly encountered in bioinformatics and computational biology. Examples are provided below. If you would prefer to present on a topic other than one listed, that would be fine; please see one of the course instructors.
- Unix Scripting
- Perl programming in bioinformatics
- R in Bioinformatics and Biostatistics
- HTML-CSS form-filling and CGI
- Java programming for bioinformatics applications
- Basic C programming for bioinformatics
- Galaxy or Bpipe scripting in Bioinformatics pipelines
- Discussion of Computational techniques in a Research Paper
