ISCB and SMBE are collaborating to organize an online journal club (as part of the ISCBacademy series of webinars) on Evolution and Comparative Genomics.

The format of webinars is that abstract/papers are presented by their first author to promote presentations by young researchers, and questions and answers are exchanged throughout the presentation to value discussion and attendee input.

If you are interested in presenting, or you want to suggest an article of interest, please send an abstract to webinar@evolcompgen.org with “Abstract for Webinar” as the title of your message.

Participation is free for any member of ISCB or SMBE, but registration is required.
