From DNA to Beer: NLM Traveling Exhibition Coming to HSL in January
In January and February 2017, we will host the NLM traveling exhibit “From DNA to Beer: Harnessing Nature in Medicine and Industry.” This exhibit explores how bacteria, yeasts, and molds can cause sickness and restore health, as well as how scientists have harnessed these microbes to manufacture new medicines. It also examines some of the processes, problems, and potential inherent in technologies that use these tiny organisms.
The exhibit is located on the third floor of the HSL in front of the CHIP Offices.
This exhibition was developed and produced by the National Library of Medicine, National Institutes of Health, and the National Museum of American History.
