Did you know that your entire DNA – or genome – is the same as 99.9 percent of the people around you? It’s that 0.1 percent difference that makes you unique.
Learn more about the human genome at the Rochester Art Center when “Genome: Unlocking Life’s Code” opens on June 23 in Rochester, Minnesota. This unique exhibit originally debuted in 2013 at the Smithsonian Institution National Museum of Natural History in Washington D.C. Since then, it has taken up residence in cities throughout the country as a traveling exhibit.
The grant complements the Destination Medical Center’s efforts to position Rochester – and specifically Discovery Square – as an international hub for medical innovation.
“Discovery Square is the economic engine for DMC. It represents the future of biomedicine, research, and technology innovation and is anticipated to be one of the largest drivers of job growth in Rochester,” says Lisa Clarke, executive director of the DMC Economic Development Agency.
