2017 Fall Seminar Series: Plant Phenomics Phridays
The Midwest Big Data Hub Digital Agriculture Spoke and the University of Nebraska Quantitative Life Sciences Initiative are hosting a fall research seminar series: Plant Phenomics Phridays. This is a continuation of the series hosted by Iowa State University over the summer (http://www.bcb.iastate.edu/plant-phenomics-phridays-seminar-3). In this series of weekly seminars, challenges and opportunities in the plant sciences will be addressed using novel approaches from diverse disciplines. Speakers in this seminar series include statisticians, biologists, data scientists, and engineers. All seminars will be webcast for remote participants.
Registration is free and includes refreshments for local attendees!
