DNA The Great Book Of Life From Mendel To Genomics Exhibition In Rome

Dates: 10.02.17 - 18.06.17. Address: Palazzo delle Esposizioni, Via Nazionale, 194, 00184 Rome, Italy.

The Palazzo delle Esposizioni in Rome is hosting the DNA The Great Book Of Life From Mendel To Genomics exhibition until the 18th June 2017. Mendel, a misunderstood genius born "too soon" and in the wrong place, was to become the posthumous father of genetics, a science that has changed our way of understanding nature forever. Gregor Mendel is one of the leading figures in an exhibition that explores what is essentially a microscopic and invisible world in an effort to discover the laws of heredity, the stories of great scientists such as Watson and Crick who enabled us to understand the structure and function of DNA, the new frontiers of genomics, the discipline's practical applications and the way they influence and are increasingly going to influence our lives and our environment, personalised gene therapy, artificial life, the use of DNA to weed out the culprit in a crime, the past, the present and the future, and much, much more. The exhibition has seven sections:

  1. The Monk In The Orchard: A Scientist Ahead Of His Time

  2. A Very Special Gadfly

  3. DNA. The Story Of Life

  4. Dolly And The Others: Cloning Hall Of Fame

  5. Thank You Henrietta: Medicine Made To Measure

  6. DNA And CSI: Hunters Of Fossils And Molecules

  7. Reading The Code, Rewriting The Code: Am I Really My Genome?

Opening times: Sunday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday: 10:00am to 8:00pm / Friday and Saturday: 10:00am to 10:30pm (closed Mondays) / Last entrance is one hour before closing time / Tickets: 10 Euros (full price)
