This returning exhibition looks at the complexities of the genome—the complete set of genetic or hereditary material of a living organism—and chronicles the remarkable breakthroughs that have taken place since the completion of the Human Genome Project in 2003. With engaging interactives, 3D models, custom animation and videos of real-life stories, this exhibition examines the benefits and the challenges that genomics presents to modern society.
