The Tuesday seminar is the central platform of scientific presentations for PhD students and postdocs within the MPI-IE. This internal seminar series allows each Tuesday from 1-2 pm two researchers to introduce and discuss their projects and results with all scientific members of the institute.
Four times a year, a scientist of the MPI-IE presents his/her research within a broader context to guests and non-scientific employees of the institute to allow better insights into the performed research. The talks take place at Wednesdays from 11–12 am, are given in German and are explicitly addressed to non-scientists.[more]
The Chromatin Club is a joint seminar of the Institute of Genetics and Molecular and Cellular Biology (IGBMC) in Strasbourg, the Friedrich Miescher Institute (FMI) in Basel and the Max Planck Institute of Immunobiology and Epigenetics (MPI-IE) in Freiburg. It rotates three times a year (Feb., Jun., Oct.) between these institutes.[more]
The tri-national "Transcription and Chromatin Club" is a half-day symposium that brings together chromatin, epigenetics, and transcription groups from within the Strasbourg (IGBMC), Freiburg (MPI-IE), and Basel (FMI) area. In addition to external keynote speakers, PhD students and Postdocs are encouraged to present their work. With an informal but high quality atmosphere, the meeting aims to foster discussion and inspiring new and strengthen existing collaborations.
