  • We will have 4 speakers today and you will have a chance to ask a few questions after ea presentationDo not despair if you don’t have a chance to ask your qustion because we will bring all of the speakers back to the front for a Q&A panel session.Breal and lunch info
  • Genomics technically began in 1975 – fredsanger was the first to sequence and organisms entire genome using a clever technique that he developed (chain termination) sanger method20 years earlier he Also determined the amino acid sequence of insulin – very importantWas awarded Nobel prize for each of these accomplishments – 2 Nobel awardsIf you told someone you were in genomics between the time of sanger and start of the human genome project – 1990 they knew what you did.Since the human genome project that is no longer trueLike many ambitious endeavors the journey to the objective is often as fruitful or more so than the objective itselfCertainly true of HGP- the journey to the human genome has produced a wealth of data, technology and tools that is revolutionizing the field of biology.So today if you said you were in genomics – microbiology, developmental biology, evolutionary biology, medical research or even a physician.In fact genomics is spilling into other fields like computer science, statistics and informatics. A true renaissance. Genomics is changing the way we do research, changing the questions we ask and even changing the way we look at biology.Great time for students to explore the many fields of genomics as potential careers
  • As we were planning to move into this fabulous buildingWe were planning for the future of our research programs and wanted our scientists to have the opportunity to participate in cutting edge scienceSo we developed the CCG
  • What role does genomics play in natural history museums like the califacad of sciences?Our primary responsibility is to go into the field and observe & describe biodiversity and then use that information to protect that diversityThe most effective way to protect biodiversity is to know as much about biodiversity and the roles it plays in ecosystem as we can.Genomics not only tells us about ourselves with the human genomeSome of the new tools in genomics can greatly enhance our understanding of complex ecosystems andUltimately, genomics will play an essential role in helping us in make informed and intelligent decisions about the conservation and protection of our planet.
