World of Genomics


April 2019

The weekend of April 12-14, CABBI researchers joined the Carl R. Woese Institute for Genomic Biology in taking the World of Genomics to the nation’s capital, specifically the National Academy of Sciences building in Washington, D.C.

It was NAS’ debut open house event to the public, and thousands of D.C. families, visitors, and tourists came through their doors to experience first-hand IGB’s and CABBI’s dynamic and diverse research portfolio.
