Synthetic Biology Journal Club Schedule

We are a casual bi-weekly journal club with broad interest in Synthetic Biology. Although presentations often tend to be about RNA papers, since it's the area of expertise for many members, we want to diversify (especially Gear).

Preparation for a presentation is minimal: read the paper, copy figures into a Powerpoint file, make a quick Google/Wikipedia search about the background, and leave the rest for group discussion.

We meet every second Wednesday at 4 pm in one of the teaching classrooms in Lab 3, level B, usually B711. If we're not there, peek into other classrooms - we should be there! 

If you have questions or want to be added to the mailing list, email samuel.hauf2@oist.jp

Summer break until September 2, 2021
