Wednesday Nite @ the Lab

"The history and future of genome science at UW-Madison" by Audrey Gasch

Event Details

Wednesday, October 2, 2019
7-8:15 p.m.
The University of Wisconsin has established a new research endeavor, the Center for Genomic Science Innovation (CGSI). The goal of the center is to foster innovative new ways of reading, studying, and interpreting an organism's DNA blueprint, called the genome, for broad application in medicine, agriculture, industry, and basic scientific discovery. Audrey Gasch will speak about what a genome is, why the field of genome science is important, and how UW-Madison is bringing genomics to WI.
