Summary
Unlocking Deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) continues to prove vital to medical research.

National DNA Day commemorates the successful completion of the Human Genome Project in 2003 and the discovery of DNAs double helix by James Watson and Francis Crick in 1953. National DNA Day is officially celebrated on April 25th and began after the first session of the 108th Congress passed concurrent resolutions designating the day in 2003. This annual celebration offers students, teachers and the public many exciting opportunities to learn about the latest advances in genomic research and explore what they may mean for their lives.
