Poster was well laid out and the introduction by the presenter was clear and well stated. However, PCR of genes encoding proteins in the apoptotic pathway is not an appropriate technique for detecting apoptosis. Most of the genes are constitutive, and the pathway activation results in post-translational protein modifications (phosphorylation, cleavage, translocation). The presenter was also unsure of what the gel of PCR genes was supposed to show, or what the purpose of molecular weight markers was, or the results of statistical analysis if any.
