Time: 14.00 -17.00h

All EPS members with an interest in Genome Biology are hereby kindly invited to join the EPS Theme 4 Symposium on the 11th of December 2020. This Symposium will be an online event. So we can be sure to follow all the corona regulation and most important to create an scientific environment where we can present and discuss our results, while maintaining a healthy distance.
We decided to split the event in two days. The second part of the meeting will be in spring 2021.

As usual this symposium gives EPS Theme 4 members the opportunity to present and discuss their own work, especially the young scientists (PhD candidates & postdocs). If you would like to present your work please send an email with name(s) of speaker(s) and title(s) of oral presentation(s) to Eric Schranz.
