Upcoming Microbiome Center Events

The Penn State Microbiome Center has been announced and we will soon launch an official website. Until that time this will serve as a site to catalogue up coming events and resources. Each week we host a brown bag meeting Friday at 11 AM to 12 PM: W203 Millennium Science.
