Symbiosis seminar fall 2023
Instructors: Janine Caira and the other person
The concept of the seminar is to learn about the natural history of symbiotic associations that are the foci of biologists at UCONN, and to learn about the patterns of specificity and ultimately engage in discussion on how specificity can be assessed and quantified.
The seminar is held in BioPharm 303 at 12PM (to 12.50PM).
