Abstract Submission for Free RNA-seq Competition

The Annual GSI Research Symposium is an interdisciplinary event emphasizing research in Genetics and Genomics at Boston University, across both the MEDical Campus and the Charles River Campus. Participation is open to all Boston area researchers with interests that emphasize these disciplines.

Updated guidelines:

  • Masking: Indoor mask mandate requires that masks remain on, except when eating or drinking.
  • Registration process: For Boston University attendees, a daily symptom attestation green “cleared” email must be shown before the event.
