Learn Python !

Hello all,

You’re still on time to subscribe to the Introduction to Python workshop. Because you don’t want to always ask someone to reformat or analyze your files and you don’t want to be restrained by Excell capacities, you want to be able to do anything and do it yourself. This is definitely a skill you (will) need and Python is the perfect tool for this.

So go ahead and check the details there. Also if you’re coming you might want to have a look at the nice interactive tutorial on CodeAcademy. Then you can come with questions and some background.



Week’s events

Hi all,

I know many of you are polishing their funding application, but once you’re done with FRSQ/CIHR, or if you are not Canadian, remember what Pablo said “be greedy” and “be creative”. So for those who missed the Funding Information session you can find the link to the slides and table in the page or directly there.

Then don’t forget the events of the week, you can still sign up until tomorrow for the qPCR workshop and the Short Course in the Art & Science of Beer.

Welcome to HGSS

Human Genetics Student Society

Hello fellow HGEN students and prospective students! The HGSS includes all trainees at the Graduate and Post-Doctoral levels registered in the Department of Human Genetics at McGill University.

Our goals are to encourage an open environment that both supports and allows constructive collaborations between labs in the department. It is our hope that the work done by the trainees in the department will be enhanced by collaborating with fellow trainees as well as with faculty members to represent the needs and wants of our constituents to the faculty and to the larger McGill community to promote social interaction between trainees in order to make the experience in our department an enjoyable and memorable one!

Our website will primarily serve as a platform to communicate what’s happening at HGSS and let you know about the many fun events that HGSS is planning for you guys throughout the year! Check out the calendar below.

So have fun checking out our site, and feel free to contact us if you have any questions or feedback.
