Outreach & Events

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.

The David L. Weaver Endowed Lecture Series

Since 2007, the Genome Center has been honored to host the David L. Weaver Lecture Series. These lectures are dedicated to the memory of David L. Weaver, a prominent biophysics researcher and professor at Tufts University, who planned to spend his sabbatical year (2006–2007) at the Genome Center.

IGG Outreach

The Integrative Genetics and Genomics (IGG) graduate group undertake a variety of outreach activities, some of which are sponsored by the Genome Center.

Halloween Symposium

Hosted annually on October 31, the Halloween Symposium is a fun, educational event with speakers and a costume contest.
