The Geee! In Genome

This exhibition examines the basics of genes and genomics, highlighting recent scientific discoveries, their applications and the impact of genomic research on society. A wide array of topics are explored, ranging from the mapping of the human genome and its implications for the health of Canadians, to the use of genomics in agriculture, forestry and the preservation of wild species. Programming materials accompany the exhibition. Together, the exhibition and programmes facilitate discussion and debate on
one of the hottest and most controversial of scientific disciplines.

Why open THEMUSEUM newsletters?

"Just scanning the themes here, I think you and the programming team should be very proud of the relevance of your institution to so many of the important conversations of our time. Please keep doing what you’re doing!"

- Glen Drummond, Chief Innovation Officer,
