Boston Evolutionary Genomics Supergroup

The Supergroup is a forum where individual research groups can share unpublished work at a level higher than the individual lab. The goal is to bring together the strong evolutionary genomics community in the Boston area. The format involves a monthly meeting that rotates among three sites -- Harvard/OEB, Longwood/HMS, and Broad/MIT -- and the presentations are generally chalk talks with no slides. Breakfast is provided, so we request RSVPs. Please sign up here to receive emails about this group, or to sign up for upcoming meetings.
