ColSci Journal Club 2013 - 2015

Kate started this journal club because of what seemed to be a clearly definable set of interactions on twitter (via #ColSci) between like-minded folks with an interest in colour and colour vision. We met on google hangouts to discuss a paper related to colour in biology. There's not a lot happening there right now, but you can find more information by visiting the ColSci community page and the ColSci Hub
