The Center for Integrative Genomics (CIG) holds a monthly advanced research seminar (CIGars) with two presentations given by graduate students and post-docs. Each presentation is approximately 25 minutes with five minutes for questions. These talks are directed to graduate students and post-docs but are open to anyone who is interested in the topics. We would love to see you in person or on our BlueJeans live stream!
