Bioinformatics Seminar & Journal Club

General Information

Welcome the Bioinformatic Seminar series and journal club. We are meeting once a month to listen to exciting talks in an informal atmosphere. The Seminar talks are mostly held by PhD students and they are presenting their latest results, challenging problems, or also give a lecture like introduction into various Bioinformatic topics.

The Journal Club is bi-weekly and we are discussing hot papers in the realm of Bioinformatics. One student is preparing a short 15 min talk which then forms the basis for an open ended discussion. We are flexible and curious, wandering between different topics and discussing the latest trends.

If this sounds interesting to you and you want to participate, please feel free to join at any time by shooting a quick Email to Richard and be included into the mailing list so you won’t miss a session.

Corona Information: Given the current status of the pandemic, the Journal Club as well as the Seminar are held in Online only format.
