Genome: The Secret of How Life Works
A Traveling Exhibit Produced by Evergreen Exhibitions made possible by national title sponsor Pfizer, in collaboration with National Human Genome Research Institute, National Institutes of Health, Department of Health and Human Services and Whitehead Institute/MIT Center for Genome Research.
Designed for all ages, the exhibit explores the nature and impact of our genes through visually-rich environments, interactives, artifacts and multi-media presentations. The exhibit examines the history of discovery from Gregor Mendel's rules of inheritance in the 19th century to the famous Watson and Crick DNA double helix. The implications of gene therapy for the future of medical science and health care are vast and unlimited.
"Genome: The Secret of How Life Works," is on display from Aug. 25, 2012 through July 5, 2013 at the George Bush Presidential Library and Museum, sponsored by Texas A&M AgriLife Research and in cooperation with the Texas A&M University Whole Systems Genomics Initiative, the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences, and the Department of Animal Science.
