Journal Club

The iRNA group is hosting an online journal club. The journal club differs from the usual format in that papers being discussed will be presented by their first author and questions are exchanged during and at the end of the presentation.

If you are interested in presenting your work at the journal club or want to suggest an article of interest, please submit papers/abstracts to with “Journal club submission” as the title of your message.
