Join us for an Exclusive MOSH Members’ Exhibition Reception for Genome!

Jan 17 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm

MOSH Members are invited to examine the complexities of the genome, the complete set of genetic instructions that is needed for every living thing to grow and function with Genome: Unlocking Life’s Code on Friday, January 17, 2020 from 6 to 8:30 p.m.

About the Exhibition:

It is in every living thing on Earth. It is the complete set of instructions that is needed for every living thing to grow and function. It can help you unlock the secrets of your past and reveal the path to your future. It is the genome.

The exhibition examines the complexities of the genome — the complete set of genetic or hereditary material of a living organism — and chronicles the remarkable breakthroughs that have taken place since the completion of the Human Genome Project more than a decade ago. With cutting-edge interactives, 3D models, custom animations and engaging videos of real-life stories, the exhibition examines both the benefits and the challenges that genomics presents to modern society.
