EMS Autumn School on Computational Aspects of Gene Regulation

There will be two after-dinner poster sessions during the school. We would like to make it a good opportunity to present your ideas to your peers as well as more experienced researchers. We hope that the informal atmosphere of after-dinner sessions with wine and cheese will foster informal discussions.

Please prepare your posters so that they fit the poster boards 146cm wide and 117cm tall.

There will be an award for the best poster handed during the last dinner of the school.

Below you will find a list of accepted participants of the school in the order of registration. Odd-numbered posters will be presented on Tuesday and even-numbered posters on Thursday.
