NHM Health Focus: DNA Day
April 2006: We invite you and your students to join in the celebration of the second annual National DNA Day. The National DNA Day observance began last year to commemorate the completion of the Human Genome Project in April 2003 and the discovery of DNAs double helix, over 50 years ago.
The National Human Genome Research Institute, in cooperation with the American Society of Human Genetics and the Genetic Alliance, has many free resources available that will help you inspire the next generation of scientists and health professionals who will use the human genome sequence to benefit human health.
Access Excellence @ the National Health Museum has more than a thousand pages to help teach and learn about DNA. Those listed below are among the all time favorites for background information and innovative teaching and learning ideas:
