Whether you realize it or not, many parts of our daily lives are influenced by genomic information and genomic technologies. Genomics now provides a powerful lens for use in various areas - from medical decisions, to food safety, to ancestry.
April 2018 will mark the 15th anniversary of the completion of the Human Genome Project. To commemorate this milestone and the genomic advances that have been made since 2003, the National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI) will launch the '15 for 15' Celebration - unveiling 15 ways that genomics has and will continue to transform our world.
We hope that you will join us on this journey and learn how genomics is influencing the world around you. Starting April 5th, we will reveal a new advance each day leading up to DNA Day on April 25th, so stay tuned for more!
