A Brief History of DNA
Infographic Apr 25, 2019
With recent advances in genetic technology enabling us to screen the whole genome of an organism, it’s hard to imagine a time when scientists didn’t even know that nucleotides existed.
National DNA Day honors the completion of the Human Genome Project in April 2003 and the discovery of the double helix of DNA in 1953. In this infographic we rewind time to explore the history of DNA and some of the landmark discoveries in the field of genomics.

There is more data around than ever before. Arguably too much. This rise of Big Data has required a lot of changes in how we acquire and analyze data. But it has also forced us to improve how we visualize data. In this infographic we look at the scale of Big Data, and how we can use innovative graphics and even virtual reality to put it in perspective.
Often referred to as “mini-organs”, organoids are tiny self-organizing 3D assemblies of cells which show some physiological features of a specific organ. As an intermediate between traditional 2D in vitro cell cultures and animal models, organoids are a useful tool for several applications.READ MORE
