GenOM ALVA Summer 2010

This year's GenOM ALVA group was one of the most competitive to date with fourteen students coming not only from Washington but Oregon, Idaho, Nevada and Arkansas. 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 have 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.
