Move over National Gazpacho Day. Step aside National Skydiving Safety Day. Today, April 25th, is DNA Day! On this day of days, we celebrate the double helix which is arguably the beautiful iconic image of the 21st century.
Deoxyribonucleic acid began winding its twisty way into our consciousnesses 55 years ago when its structure was first published in Nature on April 25, 1953. April 25th is also the day that the human genome project was officially declared complete 5 years ago.
