The field of Genomics continues to grow in importance and new techniques emerge regularly both to produce data and to analyze data. We will invite several local and foreign speakers to present their methods and results. Selected PhD students will present shortly their projects. All CUSO PhD students will be invited to have lunch with the speakers.
