How has technology changed lab work?

In the Museum's DNA learning lab, technology helps kids make their own DNA.

Because genetics is so high-tech, the new machinery that we have in the lab becomes very important. I think in the next few years, we're going to see a shift in what happens in the lab. When I started in the lab about 25 years ago, I spent most of my time doing things by hand. With new machinery, people can spend less time generating the data by hand and more time thinking about it.

New technology opens up new possibilities.
