The Journal Club of the Department of Human and Medical Genetics is a gathering of the DHMG community organized every other week to encourage the discussion of relevant topics of human genetics. During the meetings club members review interesting publications as well as their own human genetics related activities. The club members are encouraged to share the information between human genetics researchers of different profiles with the topics including molecular genetics, cytogenetics, sports medicine, population genetics as well as the laboratory protocols and data analysis with the use of bioinformatical tools. The discussions are held in English to make them accessible to all members of the community and to encourage the members to use an international language.


„Journal Club“ curators: Evelina Siavrienė, Alina Urnikytė

Time: every second Wednesday at 15:00.

Place: F135A auditorium

Invited participants: DHMG community and DHMG students
