Seminars

The Genomics Seminar Series is a diverse seminar series that features researchers in genomics, proteomics, engineering, chemical biology, computational biology, and beyond.

The Technology Forum provides a mechanism to promote informal dialog between campus researchers with interests in the development of new tools ("Technologists") and those interested in access to new capabilities to address their problems of interest ("Biologists").
