Good episode? Give it some love!

imageNational DNA Day commemorates the completion of the Human Genome Project in April 2003 and the discovery of the double helix of DNA in 1953. NHGRI began celebrating DNA Day annually on April 25th after the 108th Congress passed concurrent resolutions designating it as DNA Day. The goal of National DNA Day is to offer students, teachers and the public an opportunity to learn about and celebrate the latest advances in genomic research and explore how those advances might impact their lives. Check out NIH's director, Francis Collin's AMA on Reddit, the Harry Potter and the Genetics of Wizarding webinar and the tweetchat #DNADay16 archives.
To celebrate on the show, I talk about what DNA is, the history of humans discovering new aspects of DNA, the fun events you can take part in and careers that all relate to DNA.
Any questions about DNA Day and it’s events can be direct to dnaday@nih.gov. You can learn more on their website.
