Bioinformatics Journal Club

392172 Dörr Winter 2014/2015 Thursday 18-20 in U10-155 ekvv


In this seminar we read and discuss current research articles from different fields in bioinformatics. Each participant must present in few minutes two articles of their choice one week before their presentation. The group then votes which article will be discussed in detail in the subsequent week. To this end, the participant who choose the article will take the lead of the discussion. All participants must read the paper and prepare themselves for the discussion.

The topics of presented papers should be related to bioinformatics, biology, or computer sciences.
