"This is how we will decode cancer. It’s how we will tailor treatment to individual patients. It will save lives." – UCSC David Haussler's, SF Chronicle Op-ed

Haussler is a professor of biomolecular engineering, director of the Genomics Institute at UC Santa Cruz.
Fifteen years ago, a scrappy team of computer geeks at UC Santa Cruz assembled the first complete draft of the human genome from DNA data generated by a global consortium, giving humanity its first glimpse of our genetic heritage. Today, every major medical center offers DNA sequencing tests; we can sequence anybody’s genome for about $1,000. When a patient is diagnosed with cancer, her doctor compares her tumor’s genome to those in an enormous...

SIP is a summer program for high-school students to carry out real STEM research projects under the mentorship of UCSC graduate students, postdocs, and faculty. 

During this 90-minute introduction, we will hear from the program director, a couple of returning high-school students, and project mentors across a dozen research areas including astrophysics, evolutionary biology, electrical engineering and computer science. This HOA is part of SIP's effort to build a worldwide network of high-school scholars and university researchers through web engagement as well as live participation. 

Visit ucsc-sip.org for background and event agenda.
