Let’s take a moment to celebrate two remarkable milestones in science. Today marks the 70th anniversary of the discovery of the DNA double helix and the 20th anniversary of the completion of the Human Genome Project.
On this day in 1953, Rosalind Franklin, James Watson, Francis Crick, Maurice Wilkins, and their team published a groundbreaking paper in Nature that unraveled the structure of DNA. This discovery paved the way for the Human Genome Project, which generated the first ever sequence of the human genome in 2003. These two milestones continue to shape the field of genetics and epigenetics, opening up endless possibilities for advancements in medicine and beyond.
