Genome-related website helps unlock ‘life’s code’
UnlockingLifesCode.org provides a multimedia-rich, interactive experience to educators, students, and the general public seeking to further their knowledge of genomics.
d’Vinci Interactive developed this website, which accompanies the “Genome: Unlocking Life’s Code” exhibit at the Smithsonian Institution’s Museum of Natural History.
Teachers and students can use the site as they prepare to visit the exhibit and as a follow-up for further exploration. Independent of the exhibit, the website also teaches students and others about the fascinating developments in genomic science and research—and its multimedia elements are accessible on any type of device or platform.
Highlights of the website include an interactive timeline of the human genome; a virtual tour of the Smithsonian exhibit; and 3D imagery and video.
