High School Programs

The GenOM Project provides programs for high school students and incoming Freshmen to explore their interests and advance their studies in genomics. Genomics workshops offer high school students an introduction to genomics, and the ALVA summer research program is an opportunity for incoming Freshmen at the University of Washington to probe deeper into this cutting-edge science.
