Happy National DNA Day!

Hey kids! It’s the 5th National DNA Day! “The National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI), part of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), will mark the fifth annual National DNA Day on April 25 with events aimed at building high school students’ awareness of genetics and genomics. April 25 commemorates both the discovery in 1953 of DNA’s double helix and the 2003 completion of the Human Genome Project.”

I am confident that the next generation (or possibly Generations X 0r Y members) will fully unlock the potential benefits of the human genome project so that we will be laughing at these current days of high health care costs fifteen or twenty years from now. (Of course, there will be a different crisis by then). Call me optimistic but I don’t think that I going out on limb here.
