About Mark Wanner
I received a biology degree from Bowdoin College and studied graduate microbiology at the University of Virginia. My interests and abilities steered me into communications, however, and I left graduate school to work in book publishing, eventually overseeing all aspects of book production as managing editor of a small regional press. I retained a strong interest in science and transitioned to the Department of Psychiatry at the University of Vermont in 2001 as a communications coordinator. I joined The Jackson Laboratory in 2005 as a public information representative and now work as a senior scientific writer. I'm particularly interested in genomics and how new technologies and capabilities are changing medicine and contributing to clinical progress.
It's been 15 years since the first human genome sequence was published, and with it launched a decade and a half of human genetics and genomics inquiry that has brought amazing progress — and perhaps an equal amount of frustration. Where do we go from here?
