National DNA Day is celebrated on April 25 each year to commemorate the completion of the Human Genome Project in 2003 and the discovery of DNA’s double-helical structure in 1953. It is a unique day when students, teachers, and the public can learn more about genetics and genomics. This year, NHGRI is hosting two Human Heredity and Health in Africa (H3Africa) DNA Day presentations in addition to the annual Louise M. Slaughter National DNA Day Lecture.
