The Statistical Genetics Journal Club aims at discussing relevant articles, software and databases in the field of statistical for molecular medicine.

The Journal Club meets on a regular basis every two weeks. If you wish to be notified of upcoming Journal Clubs, please email us at the following address: lorenzo@imbi.uni-heidelberg.de. If you are interested in details about former Journal Clubs, please contact directly the speaker.
