Schedule (2015 Fall)

Bioinformatics and genomics journal club is a regular meeting for people interested in bioinformatics and genomics to discuss important recent papers. Each time one person gives the presentation and others participate in discussions. The journal club is co-organized by Food and Plant Research Focus Group.

If you are interested in our journal club and want to receive the latest announcements, please contact the coordinator.
