UW GenOM Project, ALVA 2013

GenOM ALVA Summer 2013

This year's GenOM ALVA group included 12 incoming freshmen from Washington and Alaska. 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. Individual student profiles coming soon!
