2023 marks the 201st year of Gregor Mendel’s birthday. Acknowledged as the Father of Genetics, Mendel’s studies on the pea plant paved way for experiments that could shape the future of genetics and thereby leading to the discovery of DNA and its structure. April 25, 1953, witnessed a breakthrough in the history of genetics as the article on double helical structure of DNA was published in Nature by Francis Crick and James Watson along with Maurice Wilkins and Rosalind Franklin. Consequently, Watson and Crick jointly won the Nobel prize in Physiology or Medicine in 1962. In addition, early of April 2003, marked the completion of Human Genome Project, which helped to decrypt the blueprint and genetic makeup of an individual. These discoveries were steppingstones to understand the genetic bases of infections, their mode of transmission, control and treatment. To honour the occasion of ‘World DNA Day’, the students of MSc. Biomedical Genetics are organizing the 10th National DNA Day, 2023, on the 7th and 8th October 2023. This year’s theme is Personalised Medicine, as it illuminates a future where healthcare is as unique as your DNA, tailoring treatments to your individual genetic blueprint for a truly customised path to well being.
