On May 19-21, our predocs Hann and Ksenia took some time off from the fishies to journey to Prague for the 2019 DIPP PhD retreat. DIPP PhD retreats are always organised by students and have a strict no-PI policy. This year, Ksenia was one of the organisers and she had a blast doing it!
About once a month, DIPP PhD students gather to share & discuss their research with their peers in an informal atmosphere, along with pizza. Pizza Science and Beyond (PSB) is an initiative from the Student representatives of the DIPP predocs.
How is transcription organised in the nucleus? How does the chromatin become open? Does Mate really have a wikipedia page?… and many other questions were discussed.
