‘We wish to suggest a structure for the salt of deoxyribose nucleic acid (D.N.A.).
This structure has novel features which are of considerable biological interest.”…
John Watson and Francis Crick in Molecular Structure of Nucleic Acids. A structure for deoxyribose nucleic acid.

DNA Day also marks the completion of the Human Genome Project, the 13-year international effort that identified the order, or sequence, of more than 3 billion bases in human DNA. The Human Genome Project was finished in 2003, 50 years after Watson and Crick described DNA as a double helix. (Source: National Library of Medicine)
I would like to invite you to see two presentations courtesy of the National Genome Research Institute, that, at different levels, present different aspects of Genetics research (the pictures are from the U.S. Department of Energy Genome Program’s Genome Management Information System -GMIS):
2.- Single Nucleotide Polimorphism:
