What's the Museum's new exhibition on genomics about?

The exhibit's Nature and Nurture wall reminds visitors that DNA isn't everything.
 

We are in the midst of a scientific revolution that will affect the future of medicine, agriculture, and biology. In our exhibition, I tried to focus on a few basic ideas.

I would like people to understand that we are more than our genes. Genese are involved in how we behave, but the environment in which we live also influences who we are.

Also, I think it's important to realize that while each person is unique at the genetic level, we also have a great deal in common with each other—no matter what the race, creed, or color.

I think people should be informed about what's going on in the scientific world. Our future depends on the decisions we make today.
