Personal Genetics Education Project

Pin yourself on the world map: DNA Day edition

How many pins representing genetics education can we collect in one day? Granted, it is a special day – DNA Day celebrates the discovery of the helical structure of DNA, and also the Human Genome Project.

To celebrate #DNADay15, we’ve created a special, one day only version of Map-Ed, our online quiz where you answer five short questions on a number of topics in genetics, and then pin yourself on our world map.

Our mission is education and engagement – help us do both by sharing this link far and wide:

Let’s light up the map in celebration of genetics education.  pgEd added the first pin – join us!
