Do you have your mother’s dimples? Or your father’s hairline? What makes us, us? And how much of it actually sets us apart from every other living thing on Earth? Genome: Unlocking Life’s Code begins to unravel the mystery behind the complete set of instructions needed for every living thing on Earth to grow and function: the genome.
Discover how your genome could be the key to maximizing your future quality of life as genomic science helps open the way to more personalized healthcare.
See yourself in a new way: as an individual, as a member of a family, and as part of the diversity of life on Earth.
Genome: Unlocking Life’s Code opens January 19 here at McWane Science Center and was made possible in part by financial support secured by the Foundation for the National Institutes of Health.
