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 2022-2023: Alexx Shumway and Madhav Mantri

CVG Journal Club usually meets the last Thursday each month from 4:00-5:00pm with 2 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. Please contact the organizers or Carolynn Steele-Law if you would like accomodations to particpate in these events.
