For Group Members

Journal Club

Wednesdays, at 9.15, the group has a joint meeting and journal club in kc7 at NBI. In the fall we present our projects, in the spring papers. All members of the group, collaborators and people who find the topic interesting are welcome to participate. The person responsible for the paper of the week is also responsible for bringing some bread.
