Directions for Posters
Open the poster template and use it as a guide for placement of the title and your name. Replace "Your Name" with your actual name - LEAVE "Genetics Spring 2018" on that line. You may have more figures and different arrangement/placement of text and figures to suit your needs. This is just a guideline for placement. Make it look nice and be symmetrical. You MUST ABSOLUTELY USE THE POWERPOINT TEMPLATE PROVIDED. IF YOU DON'T, I WILL NOT PRINT YOUR POSTER AND YOU WILL GET A ZERO ON THIS ASSIGNMENT!

Example Poster - (finally)
view the powerpoint at 100% to get a feel for what the text size will actually be. You can reduce the font sizes a little if you have more text or more figures to put on your posters. Don't go below 24pt font. The best font to use is Times New Roman. It is the easiest to read at a distance. Use at least 80 pt font for the title - the rule of thumb is the lettering of the title should be 1inch tall. That is 96pt font.

CRISPR ADE2 knockout PCR gel:
These powerpoint files contain the amplification and dissociation curves for the Amelogenin and TASR38 PCR experiment.
Copy the appropriate gel images from the powerpoint slides and paste them into your own file. Copy the markers and paste them into your file also. Follow the instructions given in class and on the marker slide to add the markers to your gel image. Add the lane numbers. Insert your image into your write up and add a figure legend.
