This Week in CNAST-The Center for Nucleic Acids Science and Technology - Carnegie Mellon University

This Week in CNAST

"This Week in CNAST" is CNAST's weekly seminar, held every Tuesday from 2:30-3:30 pm in the Mellon Institute Conference Room at Carnegie Mellon University. Each CNAST lab takes a weekly slot on the rotating schedule and is encouraged to personalize the title and topic for their week. For example, the presentation may focus on recent, hot-off-the-presses research results, an idea for a new project, or something from literature that the group found interesting.
