1:00 PM-5:00 PM
Co-organized by James Fraser and Nevan Krogan, we are pleased to invite you to the 2017 QBI (Quantitative Biosciences Institute) Symposia on Spring Mutations: how deep sequencing is changing protein science. It will be the first of a series of QBI symposia that will focus on cutting edge technologies that are revolutionizing biology. This meeting, being co-sponsored by QBI and the Convergence Zone at the Gladstone Institutes, will be held March 14-15, 2017, at the UCSF Campus at Mission Bay in San Francisco, California. The event will start at 12:00pm on March 14, 2017 at the Mahley Auditorium and end at 4pm March 15, 2017.
