CBCB Research in Progress Series (RIPS)

UPDATE (Sept. 13, 2020): The RIPS talks will be held virtually until a general return to campus and moderately-sized in person gathers are deemed safe (so, at least for the current semester). However, this is a great opportunity for everyone in our CBCB community to come together, and to learn about the research being done by our colleagues in different labs within the center. The format for the RIPS talks will be the same as in previous semesters; each week we will look to have 2 30-minute talks. However, if you feel you need an hour slot, please specify this in the second row of the corresponding date on the spreadsheet. The signup sheet for this semester is here. The day and time for the RIPS seminar this semester will be Thursdays from 10AM-11AM. Request the zoom meeting ID and passcode to view this weeks RIPS talk.

The CBCB RIP series provides an informal forum for computational biologists to keep abreast of colleagues' projects, to help students and postdocs hone their presentation skills, and to get expert feedback on new or ongoing projects. The forum is targeted towards anyone working at the interface of Biology and Analytical sciences.
