Do you have your mother's dimples? Your father's hairline? Aunt Matilda's ears? What determines your traits?
Genome: Unlocking Life's Code is an exhibit that begins to unravel the mystery behind the complete set of instructions needed for every living thing on Earth to grow and function: The genome. Discover how our newfound ability to identify thousands of genes that contribute to disease has helped pave the journey to more personalized healthcare.
See yourself in new ways: As an individual, as a member of a family, and as part of the diversity of life on Earth.
Genome: Unlocking Life’s Code was developed and produced by the Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History and the National Institutes for Health’s National Human Genome Research Institute, in association with Science North.
