Spatial Omics Initiative / Gene Networks in Neural & Developmental Plasticity reading group
START:     END:

2410 IGB

GNDP is hosting a monthly reading group the 3rd Tuesday of each month on spatial transcriptomics this semester. The goal is to learn about this new technology, with a focus on how it can be applied to address new questions in brain and behavior. Please contact Jess Quicksall (jessicaq@illinois.edu) if you would like to attend, virtual/hybrid format.
