A planned Smithsonian Institution exhibit that will celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Human Genome Project - the landmark scientific milestone that opened the door to today's genomic revolution. Scheduled to open in 2013, the interactive display is being developed by the National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI), part of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), and the National Museum of Natural History (NMNH).
Life The exhibit will expose visitors to the future of genomics and a broad range of themes associated with the genomics revolution, including: major breakthroughs in genomic science such as links between genes and disease; cutting-edge work in genomically guided drug therapies for application in personalized medicine; and ethical, legal and social issues related to advances in the field.
The exhibit will also honor the 60th anniversary of Drs. James Watson and Francis Crick's discovery of the double-helix, the structure that makes up the double-stranded molecules of all DNA. After its has been on display for at least one year at the NMNH, which has more 7 million annual visitors, the exhibit will travel other venues to expand its reach to national and international audiences.
