Welcome to ‘Genomics in Context’

Genomics in Context is intended to be an encyclopaedic resource on the history, practices and outcomes of genomic research. It does not aim to be completely comprehensive or neutral; the articles contained on this site are not recitations of all that is known about genomics, but thematic essays based on the latest research in the humanities and social sciences. Each of the articles are reviewed by relevant experts before publication, and are judged according to how fairly they analyse and present different perspectives, rather than intended to portray any false objectivity, neutrality or balance.

The articles are intended to be interesting, informative and thought-provoking for a variety of audiences. As such, although many will be written by academics based on academic research, they are not intended to be read only by academics. To that end, we are recruiting ‘engagement advisors’ – people from a variety of different backgrounds and interests, who have informed and evaluate every stage in the process of developing this website. If you would like to participate in this way, please contact us using the form on the ‘Contact’ page.

Please use this form also if you have any suggestions on topics to cover, or would like to write a blog post or article.
