QCB Journal Club

The training faculty and one more senior QCB trainee (post-candidacy, post-fellowship support) host QCB Journal Club (C689; 1 cr), a student-led seminar course open to all students and postdocs in trainer laboratories. Second- and third-year students must be registered for credit as part of the curricular requirements of the QCB training program.

In a typical semester, C689 is split up into four sessions, each organized by a different faculty member. For Spring 2024 schedule of classes, see below.  Effective Fall 2020, we added formal sessions on Reproducibility and Rigor, organized by the course coordinator.
