NLM’s New Traveling Exhibition
The National Library of Medicine’s Exhibition Program has a new traveling banner exhibition: From DNA to Beer: Harnessing Nature in Medicine and Industry. The exhibition explores some of the processes, problems, and potential inherent in technologies that use microorganisms for health and commercial purposes. Over the past two centuries, scientists, in partnership with industry, have developed techniques using and modifying life forms like yeast, molds, and bacteria, to create a host of new therapies and produce better foods and beverages. The exhibition illustrates the history of this dynamic relationship among microbes, medicine, technology, and industry, which has spanned centuries.
