Metagenomics Mondays Summer Seminar Series kicks off in June at Iowa State University

May 30, 2018

At universities and beyond, challenges and opportunities in microbiome research are being addressed using novel approaches from diverse applications. As a result, researchers who work in animal science, biosystems engineering, plant pathology, agronomy, veterinary medicine and similar fields may wish to attend the weekly Metagenomics Mondays summer seminar series at Iowa State University, which runs from June 4 through July 30 (except July 2) from noon to 1 p.m. (0013 Curtiss Hall). This seminar series will host speakers from veterinary sciences, plant sciences, microbiology, statistics, data science, engineering and more. 

Where: 0013 Curtiss on the ISU Campus and broadcast
Times: 12:00-1:00 PM
