Dobzhansky club

Journal Club Description

In this weekly journal club we’ll be discussing topics in ecology and evolutionary genomics, alternating between recent papers and presentations on ongoing work (i.e. with the purpose of getting input, not a smooth research presentation). All members and master thesis students of the Evolutionary Biology Division are encouraged to attend and to present their projects. Everyone else interested in a specific topic is welcomed to join!

When: Tuesdays, 13:00 - 14:00
Where: B 01.015
