UW GenOM Project, ALVA 2012

GenOM ALVA Summer 2012

This year's GenOM ALVA group included 14 incoming freshmen from Washington, Oregon, and Texas. 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, chemistry 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.
