Current Topics in Systems Biology
The Seminar Series presents leading scientists lecturing on recent advances and developments in systems biology, including topics from biology, bioengineering, and computational biology.
Students who want to obtain credit points for attending the Seminar Series are asked to contact Tanja Stadler at the beginning of the course. All presentations take place in the Science Lounge (7th floor) of the Department of Biosystems Science and Engineering of ETH Zürich in Basel, on Tuesdays from 4:15 pm to 5:15 pm, followed by an aperitif.
