Max-Planck-Institut scientist is guest in March researchers' lunch

The Young Researchers Lunch for March hosted Dirk Hincha, head of the Central Infrastructure Group (transcript profiling) of the Max-Planck-Institut fur Molekulare Pflanzenphysiologie in Potsdam, Germany.

Dr. Hincha entertained questions about analyses including metabolite profiling and RNA sequencing and shared his views on the importance of conducting hypothesis-driven experiments rather than doing studies involving more and more measurements in search of some significant differences.

Participants were Nelzo Ereful, Ranee Mabesa, Samir Ebson Topno, Deacart Arreza, and Shanta Karki.

The Young Researchers Lunch is a monthly meeting for NRS and AFSTRI scientists who are in the early stages of their career.  The purpose is to provide an opportunity for discussion with senior scientists on a range of topics on science and career paths.
