Find and read a good primer on some topic that you feel is a
course-related weakness. E.g., if your background is primarily in
CS, find a "bio for computer scientists" primer, or something on
"computing for biologists" if your background is primarily in
biology, something on probability and statistics if you feel that's
a gap, etc.
Email me (ruzzo at cs) and Kasia (kasiaw at cs)
a link and/or citation to the paper you read, together with
a few sentences about it. E.g., give me critique of it for
meeting your needs. Who would it have been good for, if not you?
Highlight something from it that you found especially interesting or
You may pick a paper from anywhere; here are a few starter suggestions:
As we get email from you, we'll post interesting additions
And note that the
analogous web page from last year's class
has links to/critiques of other sources, which may help you find
something to suit your needs.
