GenOM ALVA Summer 2011

This year's GenOM ALVA group was made up of twelve students from across the state of Washington and one student from Utah! These students participated in intense wetlab training to prepare them for the work in their labs while also attending daily math classes, tutoring sessions, chemistry classes, 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.
