ASHG and ACMG celebrate DNA Day
National DNA Day is a unique day when students, teachers and the public can learn more about genetics and genomics! It was created to commemorate the completion of the Human Genome Project in April 2003, and the discovery of DNA's double helix.
The American Society of Human Genetics (ASHG) and the American College of Medical Genetics (ACMG) welcome your participation in a DNA Day celebration on the FASEB Campus on Thursday, April 24th, between 1-2 PM in the Hitchings Conference Room (2401.)
There will be two activity sessions at 1:00 and 1:30. Visit with Dr. Joann Boughman, Judith Benkendorf and Meredith Weaver to witness DNA extractions from strawberries and discuss how DNA effects family health history.
National DNA Day is April 25, 2008. Please visit the following sites for more information about DNA Day and other planned activites sponsored by ASHG, ACMG and the National Human Genome Research Institute.
