Retroelements: Friends or Foes?
A note from Dr. Parmit Singh:
Journal club is an excellent way to meet and discuss recent findings that are published in scientific journals. You learn not only about current happenings in your field, but also about other important areas of science.
I am organizing a summer intern journal club “Retroelements: Friends or Foes?” along with my colleague Dr. Caroline Esnault. It will be held every Wednesday from June 25 to July 30, 2014, in building 18T/32, lecture hall A, from 2:00 to 3:00 p.m. In each meeting, we will discuss a current research article from one of the top journals. The article will be related to retroelements, namely retrotransposons and retroviruses.
The last date for registration is already over, but if you are interested to know more about retrotransposons and retroviruses, you can still join our club and come directly to the meeting.
