Systems Biology Seminars

The seeds of the DCSB were nurtured by regular open meetings that interleave research presentations with tutorials and journal clubs. The basic character of these meetings remains the same: free and open discussions where all are invited, and so-called dumb questions are not only accepted but welcomed. These questions are critical to educating ourselves and forming crucial links between disciplines.


Time: 2-3pm Wednesdays
Location: French Family Science Center, Room 4233 
Refreshments: Will be served following the seminar
Announcements: To receive DCSB seminar announcements, please join the bionetworks email list.
Organizers for 2013-2014:
Amy Schmid & Nick Buchler. Please contact them if you have a suggestion.
