DNA is the stuff of life that gives every living entity its unique traits. This summer, the John P. McGovern Museum of Health and Medical Science will present Genome: Unlocking Life’s Code to teach us a little more about the language of DNA. “Some very heavy hitters came together, especially after completing the human genome in 2003. Now that we’ve done that, we can communicate that to people. It includes our past and looking back to do better for our future,” said Dr. Melanie Johnson. Through physical and computer interaction, media experiences, specimens, artifacts and replicas, the exhibit will reveal the mystery of how DNA connects to every living thing.
Opens June 9. 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mondays through Saturdays. Extended hours through 7 p.m., Thursdays. 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. Sundays. Continues through September 11. 1515 Hermann Drive. For information, call 713-521-1515 or visit thehealthmuseum.org. Free to $10.
