Synthetic small interfering RNAs (siRNAs) are potent inhibitors of gene expression. These molecules are perfect examples of biomimetic chemistry as synthetic siRNAs act through the natural RNA interference (RNAi) pathway.
An opportunity to (re)connect with fellow graduate students and postdocs as we grow our community of sustainability researchers here at McGill. We will also share updates about the MSSI Collective Fellowship, an exciting new opportunity coming this spring.
Open to all McGill graduate students and postdocs that are working on - or interested in - sustainability research. Refreshments will be provided.
Registration is mandatory, please use the link below.
Calling all McGillians!
Zotero is a free and open source software that enables you to organize your research, create bibliographies and insert citations or footnotes in your assignments. This workshop will introduce participants to the main functions of Zotero.
An incredibly successful pioneer of the video game industry, Jade Raymond is President and Founder of Haven Studios.

Workshop Overview: In this workshop, students will learn:
- The different types of plots depending on the characteristic of their data/variables
- How to plot by group
- How to assign different aesthetics (size/color/shape/etc)
- How to refine their plot (title/axis labels/legends)
- How to save their plot in their local machine
- Introductory knowledge of Python
Workshop Overview: The internet is full of data that you can use for your analysis. As part of our data life cycle series, we will introduce you to efficiently retrieve data from the internet. We will look into downloading files, using APIs, web-scraping, and downloading feeds.
The Neuro's Herbert Jasper Lecture was established in 1989. A distinguished figure in neuroscience, Herbert Jasper pioneered the use of electroencephalography (EEG) a technique that he largely introduced to Canada and helped to develop into an essential neuroscience tool. In collaboration with Wilder Penfield, Jasper employed EEG to find the source of seizures in epilepsy and in other brain disorders.
Overview: Genome-wide association studies (GWAS) have led to the identification of thousands of genetic variants associated with diseases such as type-2 diabetes and hypertension. However, discoveries were made only after very large samples were collected and analyzed. Because of confidentiality restrictions on individual-level data sharing, such large samples were often reached by combining GWAS summary results from multiple cohorts using meta-analysis approaches.
