Share your findings with the world
The National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI) has partnered with the Smithsonian to provide an online digital publication. Genomics: Insights allows high schoolers, college students, and postdoctoral trainees to share genomics research topics and findings for a chance to have them peer-reviewed and published on our site.
Communicating science to the public is an important skill for scientists, and this is an exciting opportunity to develop scientific communication skills. Articles span a variety of genomics disciplines and are written to concisely communicate findings to a lay audience.
