The UW Genomics Salon provides an informal forum for discussing subjects of general intellectual interest related to genomics and, more broadly, modern biology. In the spirit of Enlightenment-era French salons, the Genomics Salon hosts discussions and social events every month on topics like citizen science, rhetoric of biotechnology, dual-use research of concern, and more. Students, faculty, and staff from all fields of study are welcome! We receive generous support as a Graduate Research Cluster through the Simpson Center for the Humanities and the UW Science Studies Network.

Find out more about upcoming events here, check out materials from previous discussions here, and get in touch with us here.

In Feb 2018, the Salon presented a poster at the Praxis Conference summarizing our salons so far. Our poster can be found here.

Hope to see you at our next event!
