Get your tickets for Science on Stage!

Join us for a creative pairing of science, theater and ethical discussion
at Green Lake’s Bathhouse Theater!

The Northwest Association for Biomedical Research presents Science on Stage, Professional Readings of The Sequence by Seattle playwright, Paul Mullin.

Sequencing of the human genome was a public race – and a personal war!  Strong personalities, emerging technology and differing views on public vs. private DNA ownership fueled the race to obtain the first human DNA sequence.  Covering the story was a young journalist worried about her own destiny with breast cancer and the information that her genome sequence would uncover.

Stay for a post-play discussion of Biology and Ethics on October 12th with invited Scientists and Ethicists. Technology is making genetic sequencing faster and easier, and this information is being used to make medical decisions. Understanding how human genetic information is being used is now more important than ever!
