The "Genome: Unlocking Life's Code" exhibition was constructed so it could easily be disassembled and transported to museums and science centers across North America. The exhibition is in the midst of a 5-year tour bringing the wonder and power of genomic science to your backyard - and more venues are being scheduled.

If you are in the midwest this summer, see the exhibition in person in Minnesota through September 15, 2018 hosted by the Rochester Art Center,40 Civic Center Drive SE, Rochester, MN 55904.

This summer sit back and take a virtual tour of the "Genome: Unlocking Life's Code" exhibition on your personal computer, tablet, or smart phone. Focus in on the various exhibition areas such as "The Genome Within Us", "Genomics and Society", and others. Explore the high-tech environment of the entire 4,400-square-foot exhibition online, and at your convenience.

Easy, fun, and requires no travel whatsoever.
