Introduction
Methods
  • Emphasize only the essence
  • Audience should be able to read poster in 2-3
    minutes
  • Posters should reveal the organization of the
    work (i.e. the scientific method)

Analyzing the poster event
Who is your audience? What do they know? What
do they need to know? How much time to they have
to look at your poster? Why are you showing this
poster? Are you trying to inform your
audience? Are you trying to persuade your
audience? What is the occasion? Is it an
informal or formal event? What kind of format
will be most readable? What is the standard
poster format?

Choosing the information you want to include
Enough detail to make your point, not so much
that the audience is overwhelmed
Ouch
Superoxide (O2-) is formed in the cell by
the reaction of oxygen (O2) with organic free
radicals and reduced metal ions (equations 1 and
2). Organics, such as reduced quinines, flavins,
iron-sulfur clusters and cytochromes, are
particularly likely to reduce O2 because, as a
part of the respiratory chain, they are
frequently exposed to the molecule.
