Ecological Genomics Journal Club

The Ecological Genomics Journal Club encourages involvement from new participants in a variety of disciplines. The Ecological Genomics Journal Club meets on Wednesdays at 4:00 p.m. in 232 Ackert Hall. The group discusses papers, research and ideas at the intersection of ecology and genomics. Anyone interested in this emerging field is encouraged to attend.
