Genome Institute Tour

Monday, July 16, 2012 @ 10:00 AM-12:01 PM


Genome mappingFrom the mapping of a deadly pneumonia-causing bacterium to a genome analysis of endangered orangutans, researchers at Washington University’s Genome Institute are studying genome-based data that informs conservation efforts, reveals clues about human evolution, and helps to improve the human condition. 

A world leader in the fast-paced, constantly changing field of genomics, The Institute is one of only three National Institutes of Health (NIH) funded large-scale sequencing centers in the United States.  This insider tour showcases the research that is harnessing the latest in DNA sequencing technologies and ushering in a new age of discovery for human health and disease.
