Who we are (0)
Women in Genome Sciences (WiGS) is a group of genome scientists working to make our department and our field more accepting. We believe that everyone should have an opportunity to be successful in science, regardless of their gender, race, sexuality, class, age, etc. Our group also has an interest in understanding how the research we perform ultimately affects minorities and society at large. We encourage all members of the department who are interested in these issues to join us.
