Mar. 13 (Th): 2-3pm
Everyone, it seems, has words of advice when it comes to writing, but what advice is really useful? This one-hour tutorial will explore examples of advice, perhaps even seeing what common points might, in fact, be more than this-or-that person’s opinion. At issue is whether we can identify common “best practices” for any occasion you face it school.

If you are looking for a way to learn some valuable business skills to complement your College of Arts and Sciences major, you may want to check out the CU Business Intensive Certificate (CUBIC) program: http://leeds.colorado.edu/cubic#overview. This certificate program through the Leeds School of Business is a 3-week, intensive course of study running in May which teaches marketing, management, accounting, and finance skills. The price of the program is $3,800, but this includes a variety of perks (free textbooks, free lunches, free career networking events, etc.). Plus, there are several scholarships available. It is certainly worth checking out if you feel like you could benefit from having some business credentials as you prepare to enter the labor market. The application deadline for this May is April 18th.
Dave Baker, from the Department of Biochemistry, University of Washington, will be visiting campus Thursday, March 13, 2014 to speak in the BioFrontiers Seminar Series at 1:00 in the Butcher Auditorium, JSCBB A115, East Campus. The title of his talk is “Design of protein structures, functions and assemblies”. Ralph Jimenez is his host and can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I will describe recent advances in computational protein design which allow the generation of new protein structures and functions. I will describe the use of these methods to design ultra-stable idealized proteins, flu neutralizing proteins, high affinity ligand binding proteins, and self-assembling protein nanomaterials. I will discuss possible applications to therapeutics, vaccines and diagnostics. I will also describe the contributions of the general public to these efforts through the distributed computing project Rosetta@home and the online protein folding and design game FoldIt.
Transportation options between East and Main campus are listed below:
Anyone with a valid Eco pass can ride the Stampede bus that runs between campuses. The Stampede has been set up to run in a two way direction every 10 minutes. Bus stops for this line are located on 18th street and along Colorado Avenue. There are bus stops in front of JSCBB on the north and south side of Colorado Ave.
If coming by bicycle or by foot you can either take the Boulder Creek Path just past 30th street continuing to where the path goes south to JSCBB or travel east along Colorado Avenue. If you bike in there are covered and uncovered bike carrels. Bikes are not allowed in the building so be sure to bring your lock.
If you prefer to drive there is metered parking located on the northwest and southeast sides of JSCBB that takes credit cards or cash.
