On April 25, Nobel Laureate James Watson, PhD, and National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI) Director Francis Collins, MD, PhD, joined teachers and children around country in celebrating DNA Day, which marked the 50th anniversary of the discovery of the structure of the life-making molecule. The program, featuring a satellite-feed videocast and online and offline educational modules, also marked the essential completion of the sequencing of the human genome.
