The Microbiology Supergroup is composed of a collection of professors, researchers, professionals, graduate students, and undergraduates from the many fields involved in microbiology. MBSG is also now offered as a graduae-level course, with a journal-club discussion following the presentation. The group has members from geolobiology, chemical engineering, MCD Biology and EE Biology. We meet monthly, on the first Monday of the month from 3:30-5:00pm, in the CIRES auditorium (third floor CIRES) on the CU campus. Typically, two people give presentations with question and answer sessions after each speaker. CIRES caters the supergroup, so there are always snacks and beverages.
