CVG Journal Club

The CVG Journal Club holds discussions of current articles drawn from broad, interdisciplinary topics which describe useful approaches, tools, and resources in genomics. Graduate students and post-docs in CVG labs will choose the topics/articles and lead the discussion. All CVG members and lab members are encouraged to attend. Meetings will be once per month, informal (and even fun!!), with snacks and drinks provided.

Faculty Advisor: Praveen Sethupathy
Student Organizers 2021-2022: Kieran Koch-Laskowski and Albert Vill

For the Fall 2021 semester, the CVG Journal Club will be held via zoom meeting.The meeting link will be shared via the Verge-L email list and may be requested by emailing the organizers or Charlotte Williams.

CVG Journal Club usually meets the last Thursday each month from 4:00-5:00pm with 2 or 3 presentations per meeting. In alignment with the CVG's commitment to discussing and advancing efforts surrounding diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) in science, one presentation per journal club meeting will center on DEI in science.
