"Wednesdays at the Genome" Public Lecture Series

The human genome is our complete DNA sequence of 3 billion letters specifying all of our hereditary information. The determination of this sequence – completed in the last few years – will have a tremendous impact on the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of human disease. The UW Department of Genome Sciences is one of the leading centers where the genome is being interpreted and where new technologies for this analysis are being developed.

These exciting discussions assume no background knowledge in genetics or other biological subjects and provide opportunities to chat with our presenters.
