MEEGene: Museum Seminar für Evolutionäre und Umwelt-Genomik

Die Seminarreihe MEEGene bringt Experten aus den Feldern vergleichende Genomik, Evolutionsbiologie und Umweltgenomik im LIB zusammen. Vorträge behandeln empirische, theoretische sowie technische Entwicklungen.

Bis auf weiteres finden alle Vorträge als Online Format statt wenn nicht anders angekündigt.

Für die Teilnahme als Zuhörer*in oder um Vortragende vorzuschlagen, kontaktieren Sie bitte meegene [at] leibniz-lib.de

Die Vorträge sind frei zugänglich, eine Anmeldung via Email jedoch erforderlich.
