For the colloquium in Biochemistry 20 talks presented by visiting professors and junior scientists have to be attended. Attendance has to be documented by the signature of the responsible organizer (host). Talks are not limited to a specific series or place. You can attend talks at any academic institution (even abroad). However, the topics have to come from the field of Biochemistry.
If you attend a conference or a symposium not more than three 45 min talks can be added to your colloquia list.
For documentation you can use this table or you can prepare your own.
