BII Journal Club

Our journal club focuses on presentations of current publications broadly related to the emerging field of evolutionary cell biology (ECB). Journal clubs occur during each academic semester at Arizona State University with faculty, research staff, and graduate students presenting papers related to specific topic themes related to ECB.

These journal clubs are open to collaborators and others interested in evolutionary cell biology. If you would like to join the mailing list for journal club, please contact Josh Hoskinson at [email protected]
