Description

Metaphors shape the way we speak, think, and act. While some metaphors of the genome are well-known—e.g., blueprint, map, book of life—metaphorical language works in subtler ways to shape the communication and consumption of genomics and other sciences. Join us for a discussion of metaphors in scientific and public communication about genes, whole-genome sequencing, CRISPR, and the practice of science itself.

Organized by Leah Ceccarelli (Communications) and Sarah Nelson (Public Health Genetics)
