The Human Genome

What makes us unique – the exhibition

MUSE – Science Museum, Trento
From 23.02.18

Why are we all different

The“HUMAN GENOME – What makes us unique” exhibition aims to provoke critical reflection on the enormous scientific and technological progress made in this area and on the individual and social effects of a constantly evolving science.
Thanks to an interactive tour carefully designed down to the last detail, featuring multi-media elements, multi-projections and use of languages from other disciplines such as art, the MUSE project deals with essential questions regarding our genetic heritage: How much does DNA count? What other factors affect its expression, such as environment and lifestyle? To what extent can we intervene to alter it?
Paying special attention at all times to human and social aspects, the exhibition invites us to explore a world contained within us all that makes us unique.
