Celebrate DNA Day on April 25
DNA Day commemorates the completion of the Human Genome Project in 2003 and the discovery of DNA's double helix in 1953. Celebrate by:
- Creating a paper model of DNA (available in English and Spanish from PDB-101)
- Visiting the National Human Genome Research Institute's DNA Day resources
- Extracting DNA in your kitchen (strawberries recommended; you can pound them in a plastic bag instead of using the blender)
- Exploring Molecule of the Month features on DNA, Designed DNA Crystal, DNA Polymerase, and more at PDB-101
Past news and events have been reported at the RCSB PDB website and past Newsletters.
