The NHGRI Director and many genomics experts from across NHGRI took questions from students, teachers and the general public on topics ranging from basic genomic research, to the genetic basis of disease, to ethical questions about genetic privacy.

Why did you decide to study DNA?
     Belen Hurle, Ph.D.: Generating data for use in developing and refining computational tools for comparing genomic sequence from multiple vertebrate species. I knew that I liked Biology in general since I was a small child, but it was only in high school that I found my passion for DNA, due to a very cool Biology teacher.
East Forest High School in PA (11th grade student)
