MEEL Lab Meeting Sep 10 2020

In today’s MEEL lunch meeting, people got together both IRL and virtually. Qinyang gave an informal talk about sex allocation in a hermaphroditic flatworm, a project he did when he was working in Jessica Abbot’s lab.

Later, Qinyang and Hongkai introduced a stratified lottery system in selecting MEEL meeting presenters for this autumn semester. Basically, the odds of being picked was reversal to one’s academic seniority. Draws were performed live and a draft presenters list was generated.

Despite of organisers’ effort, methodology and transparency of the lottery was subject to some degree of skepticism, mostly coming from the selected presenters.
