Molecular Genetics Journal Club

 

Thursdays, 12:00 - 12:50 PM

Journal Club seminars are held at Gzang 121

Postdocs welcome

Postdocs are welcome and encouraged to present a 25-minute talk on their research, targeted to a broad molecular and cell biology audience. Please contact Sebastian Kadener (skadener@brandeis.edu) to participate.

Students must submit your paper choices or invited speaker name to Sebastian Kadener (skadener@brandeis.edu) at least two weeks in advance. I will advise you as to whether the choice is appropriate (i.e. has a molecular/genetics flavor).
