Genome Technology Center

Genome Technology Club Seminars

Schedule / Location

The Genome Technology Club takes place every other Thursday at 11:00 am at the SGTC conference room, unless specified otherwise below.

The Genome Technology Club will have its focus on recent technical development in Genomics. The aim is to keep us up to date as the field expands and it becomes more difficult to catch up with the literature.

Outstanding researchers from academia and industry will be invited to give talks at the Genome Technology Center. In addition, researchers at Stanford will evaluate recent scientific papers from international journals in talks limited to 30 minutes.

Please let us know if you want to be removed from or added to the following list as a speaker. If you want to change the date of your talk, please contact one of the speakers and do the change and let me know about your new date.
For further information please e-mail Nader Pourmand (pourmand at
We need to be informed about the title of your talk at least one week before your talk.

The seminars take place at the seminar room, Stanford Genome Technology Center. [maps/directions]
