Communicate Your Research Work Efficiently Using Graphical Abstracts with Frederic Bouche
Plantae Seminar Series
Research takes time—a lot of time.
Once your manuscript is submitted, the reviewing process takes time—a lot of time. When your paper is finally published, you want it to be noticed by the scientific community – you want it to stand out and get noticed. One way to achieve this goal is to create graphical abstracts that you and your co-authors can use to promote your research. In this webinar, I will share my experience regarding the creation of graphical abstracts and will describe the workflow I use to create these infographics. The goal of this webinar is to set you on the path to creating graphical abstracts to advertise your own work.
Frédéric Bouché, University of Wisconsin-Madison
After completing a Ph.D. at the University of Liège (Belgium) in 2015, where he worked on the genetic mechanisms involved in the timing of flowering in Arabidopsis, he started a postdoc at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. In the laboratory of Prof. Rick Amasino, he studies the genetic pathways regulating the onset of flowering in Brachypodium distachyon, a model grass species closely related to wheat, barley, and oats. Besides bench work, he created FLOR-ID, an interactive database of flowering-time genes (www.flor-id.org), and he spends some of his free time creating infographics related to his research.
