Chromatin Club Bay Area Seminar Series

Chromatin Club Bay Area

The Chromatin Club Bay Area was founded to foster a scientific community between Stanford, Berkeley, UC San Francisco, UC Santa Cruz, and UC Davis. We organize monthly online seminars during which three scientists from our institutions present their work, and in person meetings each quarter to facilitate networking between researchers.

The scientific focus of the Chromatin Club Bay Area is broad and aims at bridging basic and translational epigenetic research.

Attendance is free of charge, but registration is required.
