Happy DNA Day!

Apr 17, 2012 | DNA science

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]DNA Day this year will be celebrated on Friday, April 20. Usually set around April 25, DNA Day commemorates the date that the discovery of the DNA double helix was published by James Watson, Francis Crick, Maurice Wilkins, and Rosalind Franklin. It was also this month in 2003 that the Human Genome Project announced the completion of the human genome draft.
What are you doing to celebrate DNA Day? Here’s a list of fun DNA activities to get you started:

  • Our DNA Education Center features fun projects, including DNA origami and an interactive family portraits workbook demonstrating inherited traits.
  • The National Genome Research Institute has an activity page that includes a video on how to extract DNA from strawberries.
  • Chat with scientists, genetic counselors, and clinicians about anything you’ve ever wanted to know about DNA on April 20 from 8 am to 5 pm on the DNA Day Chatroom.
