Statistical Genetics Seminar Series

Welcome to Statistical Genetics Seminar Series. The Statistical Genetics Seminar meets regularly from 9:30 to 11:00 A.M. every other Friday, (September to June) in 801 Massachusetts Avenue Crosstown building room 305. The goal is to get to know each other, learn cutting edge research, foster collaboration, and get help. The group brainstorms together in September to lay out the year-long topics of interest for discussion. At each session one person or a group of participants or an invited outside speaker presents (formally/informally) the material, usually pertaining to his or her area of expertise, interest or research and leads the discussion. Our participants include a mix of Biostatistics and Bioinformatics students, in addition to Faculty members involved in genetics research.

The Statistical Genetics Seminar Series will be held on the 1st and 3rd Fridays of the month at 9:30am through zoom for the 2020-2021 academic year. To email if you want to be added to the mailing list.
