BIOL 5496/CSE 7800: Computational Molecular Biology Journal Club


Welcome to the home page for BIOL 5496/CSE 7800, the Computational Molecular Biology Journal Club. The Journal Club meets Tuesdays at 10:30 AM in 4515 McKinley, Rm 4212.

Your course masters are Jeremy Buhler and Gary Stormo.

Participants in the Journal Club present recent published research in the areas of computational molecular biology, systems biology, and bioinformatics. Every student receiving credit for participation must present a paper at one meeting of the Journal Club and must otherwise participate as described in the course overview. Other students, postdocs, faculty, and staff are welcome to attend and participate.

Announcements of upcoming meetings will be made via the mailing list compgen-disc@lists.genetics.wustl.edu. Please ask one of the course masters if you want to join the list.
