Stephanie Battle has been awarded a Ford Foundation fellowship. William Edelman has received honorable mention.
Postdoctoral fellow Dr. Matt Maurano has been selected as a winner of the 2014 Charles J. Epstein Trainee Awards for Excellence in Human Genetics Research at the 64th annual meeting of the American Society of Human Genetics.
The Department of Genome Sciences is excited to welcome Dr. Cole Trapnell as its newest Assistant Professor. Dr. Trapnell studies stem cells and differentiation, primarily using high throughput transcriptome sequencing. He comes to UW from a postdoc at John Rinn’s lab at Harvard and before that, earning his Ph.D. in Computer Science from the University of Maryland, College Park working with both Steven Salzberg and Lior Pachter.
UW Genome Sciences played an important role in determining the sequence of the 3 billion letters of DNA specifying all of our hereditary information and is now one of the leading centers where the human genome is being interpreted and where new technologies for this analysis are being developed.
To share these advances with the public, the Department of Genome Sciences hosts a 'Wednesday Evenings at the Genome' public lecture series each summer. These exciting discussions assume no background knowledge in genetics or other biological subjects and provide opportunities to chat with our presenters. Admission is free.
Presentations begin at 7:00 pm in Foege Auditorium and will be followed by refreshments at 8:00 pm just outside the auditorium.

"Cancer: What is it? Where does it come from? What can we do?"
July 15 Dr. Cole Trapnell “Reprogramming our cells: finding and exploiting biological wormholes”
