GTS Schedule

The Genetics Training Seminars (GTS) series introduces basic methods and techniques, "good laboratory practice", but also newly-acquired equipment to our students and members of the Faculty of Biology. Although mainly designed for PhD and undergraduate students, this seminar series is open to everyone who is interested in a particular technique or machine. The seminars will be presented every third Friday of the month, 1-3 pm. You will find a schedule with the next GTS below.
