National DNA Day
Date When Celebrated : This holiday event is always held on April 25
What do you know about your DNA? Don't you think it's about time you found out?
National DNA Day was created to encourage students, teachers and the general public to learn about genetics and genomics. It also encourages us to learn about current research and advances.
This special event commemorates the completion of the Human Genome Project in 2003, and the discovery of DNA's double helix in 1953.
A great way to celebrate National DNA Day, is to get your DNA tested, to identify your ancestry. Armed with your DNA results, you will find it exciting, and perhaps a little intriguing, to research your ancestry to see who is in your family tree. Do you have anyone famous in your family tree?
Start the search for that question, by getting your DNA tested today. Once your kit arrives, all you have to do is spit in a little tube and mail it back. The results will come in a couple weeks. An exciting search for members of your family tree will follow. But, be prepared. You don't know what you will uncover about your ancestors.
History and Origin of "National DNA Day":
In 2003, the U.S. Congress passed a resolution making April 25th National DNA Day.
