Understanding a Paper mini posterAre you confident in your ability to properly read and understand literature? A key skill to have as a scientist is to be able to digest new information rapidly; at the centre of this lies the ability to properly read and understand literature. We’ll be using a very recent manuscript describing a novel CRISPR-based COVID-19 detection platform as our framework to dive into the essentials of how to read a paper.

Key Concepts:

  • Role of figure formatting and story order in ease of understanding data
  • Determining validity of conclusions based on presented data
  • Accessibility and validity of papers (peer review versus open-source)
