2008 National DNA Day Online Chatroom Transcript

This is just one question from an archive of the National DNA Day Moderated Chat held in April 2008. 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 is DNA Day NOT a National Holiday?
     Sarah Harding M.P.H.: Creates and implements community engagement programs focusing on genetics. That is a great question! And it would be wonderful to have the day off. But if we did, we couldn't be here answering your questions!
