INC Academy is organised by the International Nucleome Consortium (INC) funded by the COST action. Our virtual events are every second Thursday at 5pm CET, 4pm BST, 8am PDT. These include hands-on tutorials, regular webinars, reports from short-term scientific missions and more. The schedule of future events and the list of past events are provided below.
