OHSU Knight CI Genomic Instability Interest Group
Objectives of the OHSU DNA R3 Club
Cross-departmental workshop composed of students, postdocs, and faculty with shared interest in basic principles and emerging discoveries in genomic instability, DNA replication, recombination and repair. The goals of the meetings and this wiki:
- Establish a challenging and interactive cross-departmental focus group that will advance understanding of our individual projects and encourage collaborations.
- Provide students and postdocs with training and interactions with faculty interested in the R3 Topics
Want to join us? All are invited!
- All year. The third Tuesday of the month is the DNA repair videoconference for the DNA Repair Interest Group at NIH. NIH videoconference is held at 9:30 am in the CROET 2nd floor conference room (BSAC 2501M).
- All year. Campus-wide Seminars of R3 Club interest are posted below. Please post your event or email Maureen through OpenWetWare with any updates.
- Winter & Spring terms- Genomic Instability Club, First Tuesday of the month, 2:30 pm, MRB 634
- Spring Term, alternate years: the R3 clubs folds into the weekly Advanced Biochemistry Class.
