Genomics for Professionals

Genomic research has an ever-growing impact on areas such as health and agriculture, yet most members of the public do not have access to the information they need to understand new findings and evaluate how they might be affected by them, both personally and professionally.

Genomics Videos

The IGB has created a range of video resources to introduce various genomics concepts and highlight different research areas and approaches. Explore below to learn more!

IGB's YouTube channel features videos that introduce viewers to our Institute, our researchers, and some of our most exciting past events.

Entrepreneurship and Innovation

The mission of the IGB is to advance life science research at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign and to stimulate bio-economic development in the state of Illinois. Our members not only conduct path-breaking genomic research to address societal issues, but they also strive to connect science, technology and business to maximize the impact of their science.
