ISEP Online Seminar Series on Protist Genomics, Diversity, and Evolution
ISEP is very pleased to announce the official "ISEP Protist Genomics, Diversity, and Evolution" virtual seminar series. We look forward to this being a venue for sharing new discoveries in the field of Evolutionary Protistology and a way to bring the community closer together on an on-going basis.
- Joel B. Dacks, ISEP President (May 25th, 2020)
