Hello all,

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Actually i heard that usually for research which is still unpublished, we should not mention the specific title.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....... :rolleyes:

Thanks
I/we have to wait for 30 years to let the mirAcle haPPen....someone here told me!!!!

How close are you to publishing?
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.

I knew it! I knew it! Well, not in the sense of having the slightest idea, but I knew there was something I didn't know.

I second what Lost said. If your work is not close to the finish line and is sensitive, you should wait till you start writing the paper. I do see people use "gene X" to represent the name of a gene in abstract.

Thank you guys for the suggestions. If I judge my work, than based on the results and time spent, it could still take 1.5 to 2 more years to publish. The gene is one of the MAPKs in arabidopsis and the objective is to dig into a MAPK cascade against some biotic and abiotic stresses.

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 :rolleyes: .

Or simply rename the gene. Genes are oftened renamed after finding out which function they have.
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...
