Room: IGB 607
Time: Thursdays 12:00-12:50PM
- Master presentation and communication skills.
- Learn and educate on the state of the art bioinformatics, statistical or quantitative omics (e.g. transcriptomic, genomic, proteomic), and computational biology foundations and applications.

- Expose participants to the requirements and expectations that participants have to conform at professional meetings.
The Graduate/Undergraduate Bioinformatics Seminar course, is organized by Prof. Sandra Rodriguez-Zas and Prof. Gustavo Caetano-Anolles as part of the UIUC graduate bioinformatics program. This seminar series focuses on research in the field of bioinformatics and computational biology. In this course, students present research or primary literature in a short seminar format (15-25 minutes in length) with discussions following their presentations. Presentations typically focus on, but are not limited to, phylogenetic reconstruction, protein structure, SNPs and polymorphisms, and medical informatics.
Fisk University faculty and students are participating remotely in this seminar series to gain exposure to a graduate-level Bioinformatics seminar course taught at UIUC.
