The UW Department of Genome Sciences is excited to present its summer public lecture series, Wednesday Evenings at the Genome, in July at the UW main campus.

The Department of Genome Sciences has played an important role in determining the sequence of 3 billion letters of DNA specifying human hereditary information and is one of the leading centers where the human genome is being interpreted and where new technologies for this analysis are being developed. These informative discussions require no background knowledge in genetics or other biological subjects and provide great opportunities to chat with UW presenters.

Admission is free and the public is especially encouraged to attend!
Presentations begin at 7 p.m. in the W. H. Foege Building Auditorium, room S-060, followed by refreshments at 8 p.m.

Evening parking at the UW main campus is $3. Nearby street parking is available.
Lot parking is also available with a parking permit.

Gatehouse 6 is the closest location to the Foege Building to obtain a parking permit. Map:
