There are additional seminar series available both inside and outside of the department and university. Notices of these are posted on the board outside the main office and are also distributed by e-mail. These include the seminar series of the Center for Genome Research and Biocomputing (CGRB), the Linus Pauling Institute (LPI), the Department of Chemistry, and the Department of Physics.

There are also several formal or informal Journal Clubs available on campus, e.g. the BB Journal Club (once a month), the Molecular Biology Journal Club, and other journal clubs for various topics. These are less formal presentations of work ongoing at OSU or at other institutions, where questions are asked of the presenter during the talk. Attendance at these is optional, but generally useful to help broaden science perspective outside the immediate department.
