GenOM ALVA Summer 2008

There were twelve participants in the GenOM ALVA program for the summer of 2008. These students participated in intense wetlab training to prepare them for the work in their labs while also attending daily math classes, tutoring sessions, genomics seminars and ethics courses.

During their time in ALVA these students accomplished great things and look to do much more in the future. To learn more about their experiences in the ALVA program and to see where they are now, select the links below.
