Seminar Series

Many CBCB seminars are now held jointly with the Computational Biology, Bioinformatics and Genomics Concentration Area within the Biological Sciences Graduate Program. These CBG seminars are usually scheduled for noon in the seminar room of the Biosciences Research Building (room 1103).

Some external seminars of interest to CBCB, some informal seminars, and Research in Progress, are held in CBCB (Directions, Google Map, seminar room 3118).
