The BIOmac Seminar brings together research groups in the area of biochemistry at the University of Bayreuth. It is intended to foster collaborations between these groups and to give an opportunity for young researchers (Master Students, PhD students, Postdocs) to present their work and to discuss their results.
The BIOmac Seminar takes place in S135 (NW III) on Thursdays at 9 am about every three weeks during the semester. Talks should be prepared to last about 30 min in order to allow for ample discussion during and after the seminar.
