Tools & Technology Seminar Series

The DCMB Tools and Technology Seminar Series is presented in room 2036, Palmer Commons each Thursday, at 12 noon EST (Note: Due to the removal of "Michigan Time" the seminar will start promptly at 12 noon).

Each seminar highlights a tool or technology, that is under development or in current use, that is of interest to department and University researchers. These seminars are streamed live using Blue Jeans Events and are also archived and made available for future viewing via video streaming via the below video archive which links to the DCMB YouTube Chanel:
