Learn how a science degree opens doors to the laboratory and beyond! Join Young Women In Bio (YWIB) at the J. Craig Venter Institute for an opportunity to meet and interact with women who have science degrees and work in various careers that support the cutting-edge research in genomics and bioinformatics. Tour the facilities and see what it takes to sequence one genome or several thousands.
Young Women in Bio (YWIB) Biotechnology Career Leadership for Girls is a series of events dedicated to inspiring girls in biotechnology education and career choices.
