Outreach and Giving
The UC Davis Genome Center plays an important role in both the campus and the broader community to educate and disseminate information on genomics technology and its impact on science and society. We both engage and receive support from our community in the form of free public events, endowed lectureships, and donations.
These monthly drop-in sessions are open to anyone with questions regarding Genomics, Epigenomics and Gene Expression, Proteomics, Metabolomics, Network Biology and Bioinformatics. Click to see specific dates and locations.
Bits & Bites is a new lunch club that aims to meet once a week and talk about various aspects of sequence analysis. The idea is to gather together people in a very informal environment and share expertise on various subjects relating to bioinformatics and genomics. For more details visit the website (http://bitsandbites.posterous.com/), join the mailing list, or follow the twitter account.
This half day workshop, held Thurs, Nov 2, 2011, was aimed at faculty who wanted to learn what genomics can do and what it would take to do it.
An Evening with the Genome Center occurs twice each year, and is intended to engage our community about the impacts that the rapid advances in genomics is having on medicine, food, our world and our society.
The David L. Weaver Endowed Lectures in Biophysics and Computational Biology lectureship is dedicated to the memory of David L. Weaver, a prominent biophysics researcher and professor at Tufts University.
