Biotech 201 COVID-19 Updates
In response to risks posed by COVID-19, and out of concern for the safety and well-being of our attendees, the Biotech 201 series typically scheduled for February 2021 will regrettably not be held this year. We look forward to gathering together again in the not-too-distant future to explore the world of genomics.
Until then, we encourage you to follow Dr. Lamb’s Beyond the Blog video series for easy-to-understand explanations of the science behind COVID-19.
In today’s world, biotechnology influences daily decisions regarding food, energy and health. To responsibly evaluate these choices we all need to understand DNA, the role of genetics in disease and the impact of biotechnology on agriculture, medicine and the environment.
The Biotech 201 series is a follow-on course for those who have completed Biotech 101. The course is offered each February as four weekly sessions led by Neil Lamb, PhD, HudsonAlpha’s Vice President for Educational Outreach. Each year’s Biotech 201 explores a different topic in genetics and genomics research. Past special topics have included agricultural genomics; the human microbiome; cancer; neurodegenerative, psychiatric and adult-onset disorders; and technologies used for research, diagnosis and treatments.
