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.

Spatial Omics Initiative / Center for Artificial Intelligence and Modeling working group
START:     END:
612 Conference Center Carl R. Woese Institute for Genomic Biology

The Spatial Omics Initiative / CAIM monthly working group brings together researchers from different disciplines to enable breakthroughs in genomic biology by developing new ways to embed omics data in space, and to facilitate the matching of biological problems to quantitative methods.

Graduate students from biological and analytical research groups encouraged to attend, present work, and participate in collective discussions. Lunch will be provided. Click here for full info.
