An exhibition on genetics planned and realized by Fondazione Idis-Città della Scienza, CNR (National Research Council) and the Insitute of Genetics and Biophysics “Adriano Buzzati Traverso”.
“The Thread of Life” celebrates the recent advances and the acquired knowledge in the field of genetics, with a focus on the italian contribution to the advancement of the research. A journey between past and future, tracing the main contributions of italian and neapolitan scientists, at the forefront in the research for discovering the molecule of life.
A big molecule of RNA or DNA, the thread of life, will guide adults and children through the secrets of genetics, turning an apparently difficult and unfamiliar matter in an exciting trip among chromosomes, genes and their effects.
