IBEST hosts several public events throughout the year that facilitate collaboration, the sharing of knowledge and presentation experience to undergraduates, graduates and faculty.

IBEST Seminar Series

The IBEST Seminar Series attracts top scientists from across the nation and world to the campus of the University of Idaho. These seminars are used as a core element of a BCB graduate seminar course, and are open to the public. Often seminar topics relate to a common theme. Past themes have included studies of adaptive evolution in natural populations, mathematical modeling of evolutionary processes, next-generation DNA sequencing technology and tools for the analysis of genomics datasets.
