Exhibit - 2nd Floor tower - August 28 - September 28, 2017
The National Library of Medicine, in cooperation with the National Museum of American History, is pleased to present our latest traveling exhibition, From DNA to Beer: Harnessing Nature in Medicine & History. Microbes—tiny organisms too small to be seen with the naked eye—have altered human history. Life forms such as bacteria, yeasts, and molds can cause sickness or restore health, and help produce foods and beverages for our consumption. Drawing from the collections of the National Museum of American History and the National Library of Medicine, From DNA to Beer will help to promote public understanding of the dynamic relationship between microbes, technology, and science and medicine.
