ISEP Online Seminar Series on Protist Genomics, Diversity, and Evolution
We are organizing the second, online ISEP seminar series. Last year's seminar was a great way to bring the community together in a world where we all fell apart. This year, we want to build on that success.
Starting date: May 6th 2021.
When? Every other Thursday, with an alternative time slot at 3 p.m. and 11 p.m. Central European Summer Time (GMT+2). Two talks will be given at each session (20 min talk + 10 min for questions each).
