Center for Integrative Genomics Advanced Research Seminar—CIGars 

The Center for Integrative Genomics (CIG) holds monthly advanced research seminars (CIGars) with two presentations given by graduate students and post-docs. Each presentation is approximately 25 minutes with 5 minutes for questions. These talks are directed to graduate students and post-docs but are open to anyone who is interested in the topics.
