Computational Biology Seminar Series for Undergraduates

Sep
17

A new monthly seminar series on computational biology has just begun at LSU.  These seminars are targeted towards undergraduates and intended to stimulate student interest in the intersection of biology and computation.  This semester, students will learn about exciting research being done by new faculty here in LSU's Dept. of Biological Sciences.  Dr. Brown kicked off the series on Sept. 9th with his talk, titled "Models, Genomes, and Trees: Computational Inferences of Evolutionary History".  The next talk will be given by Dr.
