Causality Journal Club

This series highlights important publications on Causal Inference and is presented by graduate students and postdoctoral fellows for stimulating discussion and exchange of ideas. The Journal Club is held in-person at G9.250A on the third Tuesday of every month at 9 AM. This is a departmental journal club for interested members of the Lyda Hill Department of Bioinformatics and Green Center for Systems Biology. If you are interested in attending, please contact Prapti Mody

The Journal Club will continue in September. Have a great Summer!
