UW GenOM Project, ALVA 2016

GenOM ALVA Summer 2016

This year's GenOM ALVA group included 14 incoming freshmen from Washington and California. 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, ethics and social justice courses.

During their time in ALVA these students have accomplished great things and look to do much more in the future. Click a name or picture to view each individual student profile.
