Quick question about abstract submission
Posted 10 June 2009 - 02:45 PM
I wanna submit an abstract to a conference about my ongoing research. The thing i want to know is should I mention the name of the gene about which i got some novel functions or should I write abstract generally about the gene family im working with and mention the results i got? Im going to apply for the oral presentation.
Actually i heard that usually for research which is still unpublished, we should not mention the specific title. seems logical to me but i wanna hear comments from you guys.......

If you're pretty close, then you can be more detailed. Write a fairly general one and see what your supervisor/colleagues think.
I would think you would need to at least state which gene it is otherwise they will not know what you are talking about.

The conference is just a kinda students meeting and not much important, the truth is I need some time off......well i also have some data about tomato MAPKs and I think its a good idea to prersent it because its just a side project...
And naming the gene as 'Gene X' or 'Agent X' is a good idea, i'll give it a try...thanks pcrman .

So you can give your gene a name (like msrX for MAPK stress response protein X or whatever you want) and noone knows which gene it is...
