Happy new year and welcome to the year of DNA! We're celebrating 60 years of DNA discovery and you're invited to celebrate with us!

In 1953, James D. Watson and Francis Crick’s discovery of the structure of DNA led to the birth of molecular biology and the development of a new toolbox for molecular biologists that has inspired generations of scientists and helped them make thousands of discoveries.

This year, we celebrate this year of DNA discovery with scientific researchers all over the globe Watson and Crick’s milestone discovery, the 30-year anniversary of the invention of PCR, and 10 years since the Human Genome Project was published.

The inspiring work you do today to feed, fuel, and heal the world moves us ever closer to a future of life even better. 2013 and the years to come will undoubtedly bring momentous events as science continues to rapidly move forward.

Our year of DNA has just begun and we're kicking it off with a free 60 Year DNA discovery calendar that commemorates historic DNA discoveries and highlights DNA events throughout the year. Order one for your lab today and visit our DNA anniversary page to keep up to date with events and offers from Life Technologies celebrating this historic year.
