Seminar Listings

Each semester, all students are encouraged to register for and attend the weekly Department of Biological Sciences Research Seminar (03-750) and Computational Biology Department Seminar (02-702). Graduate students are strongly urged to meet the speakers to broaden their knowledge of cutting-edge biological science and to make useful contacts; the faculty host can arrange individual or small group meetings for interested students. Additionally, students may register for and attend the weekly Department of Biological Sciences Journal Club (Graduate Research Seminar 03-755) and Computational Biology Department Journal Club (Current Topics in Computational Biology 02-701) during which faculty members and doctoral students give 25-minute presentations. M.S. students taking this course for credit must prepare and submit reports describing the presentations.
