The Computational and Mathematical Biology (BCM) seminars

These fortnightly seminars are organized by the TIMC lab in Grenoble

External guests are very welcome to attend and to present their work

To receive the information about the seminar, subscribe to the mailing list

The seminars take place every other Thursday, at 14:00, in Pavillon Taillefer (usually room R31)

🆕 🍕September 2023: we have several external speakers on the schedule. To have more time to chat with them, we'll try to organize a pizza lunch before these seminars (in the cafeteria at 13:00). Pizza events will be announced on the mailing list. 🍕
