Human Double Helix

Now this just comes in the category of “Too Cool”!!!

This photo appears on the web page of the National Human Genome Research Institute tagged “National DNA Day” and noted in the comments that it is from Hacettepe University,  Ankara, Turkey.

The SciCo Facebook page has another photo and says that this 60th anniversary commemorative event in April 2013 (celebrating the discovery of DNA) created a Guinness World Record set by the students at the University – the largest Human DNA Double Helix.  I didn’t know there was a category for that!

My daughter-in-law sent me this next photo, probably from the same event.  Thanks Shawn!
