Journal Clubs

Per the BCMB Graduate Student Handbook, all students should register for BCMB 8080 (Journal Club) every Fall and Spring term while in residence. Journal Club participation provides an important training experience and a mechanism for students to stay current with the primary literature. Students may participate in any of the many journal clubs that are offered both within and outside the Department that meet at various times and are generally open to interested students. If you have trouble gaining access to a Journal Club, contact the BCMB Graduate Coordinator (
