PQG Seminar Series

The PQG will host another monthly seminar series for the 2015-2016 school year. Please see the full list of dates and speakers below, as they continue to be updated.

The goal of the PQG Seminar Series is to encourage the exchanging of ideas, promote interaction, collaboration, and research in quantitative genomics. It also aims to promote the mission of the PQG which is to improve health through an interdisciplinary study of genetics, behavior, environment and medicine. The seminar series looks to include the development and application of quantitative methods, especially for high dimensional data, as well as a focus on the training of quantitative genomic scientists.

Please direct any logistical questions to Shaina Andelman at sandelma@hsph.harvard.edu
