What is National DNA Day?

National DNA Day commemorates the successful completion of the Human Genome Project in 2003 and the discovery of DNA’s double helix by James Watson and Francis Crick in 1953. Typically DNA day is celebrated on April 25th which commentates the day is the actual day Crick and Watson discovered DNA’s double helix.  DNA Day is held each year to celebrate and raise awareness for students, teachers and the public to learn about the latest advances in genomic research and explore how genetics and genomics affect their lives.
