The exhibit delves into how scientists read and interpret DNA sequences, what our genes can tell us about inherited diseases, how DNA can be manipulated to improve crops, and more. Activities let you see what it’s like to wade through DNA sequences in search of a disease agent or use DNA evidence to catch a criminal.
