The annual national DNA day ambassador program

National DNA Day commemorates the completion of the Human Genome Project in April 2003 and the discovery of DNA’s double helix structure in April 1953. It is a day that encourages students, teachers and the public to learn more about genetics and genomics.

We are looking for participants for this fun-filled event!
