Vertebrate Genomics Club, a.k.a "The Verge"

John Schimenti and Natasza Kurpios, Organizers

The Genomics Club is a forum for research presentations by members. In previous years, this forum was known as "The Mouse Club."

The "Verge" will meet at Noon on the second Tuesday of each month. Lunch will be provided at 11:45 AM.
