Public Lecture Series
The UW Department of 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.

Genome Sciences Association for the Inclusion of Minority Students (GSAIMS) is a group of graduate students and postdoctoral scholars interested in expanding the spaces and support for underrepresented minorities (URM)* in the Department of Genome Sciences at the University of Washington. We aim to provide peer support, mentorship, and guidance to aid individuals as they transition and navigate through their graduate and professional careers. We seek to provide opportunities for students to participate in events that will allow for inclusive and intersectional dialogue for all participants. GSAIMS aspires to provide a closer connection to more diverse student organizations within UW and outreach opportunities in Seattle.
Women in Genome Sciences
The Women in Genome Sciences (WiGS) organization was created in order to establish an environment supportive of women in Genome Sciences. Our primary mission is to address issues particularly relevant to women in the department. These issues include, but are not limited to recruitment of graduate students and faculty, attrition of women from academic science, navigation of an academic career with a family, and development of a department friendly to women.
