CVG Journal Club

The CVG Journal Club holds discussions of current articles drawn from broad, interdisciplinary topics which describe useful approaches, tools, and resources in genomics. Graduate students and post-docs in CVG labs will choose the topics/articles and lead the discussion. All CVG members and lab members are encouraged to attend. Meetings will be once per month, informal (and even fun!!), with snacks and drinks provided.

Organizers 2017-2018: John Schimenti, Tina Tran, and Roman Spektor

Upcoming Schedule

The CVG Journal Club will meet again in Fall 2018.
