Molecular Genetics Journal Club
Thursdays, 12:00 - 12:50 PM
Journal Club seminars are held at Gzang 121
Students must submit your paper choices or invited speaker name to Sebastian Kadener (firstname.lastname@example.org) at least two weeks in advance. I will advise you as to whether the choice is appropriate (i.e. has a molecular/genetics flavor).
