Go Biotech Antiquing!
It's easy to get caught up in today's modern technology, but some of our most important discoveries were made with equipment one could consider antiques.
October 16, 2013 - The Smithsonian's National Museum of American History has curated a display of artifacts related to Genentech’s history and role in the creation of the biotechnology industry. The exhibit, opening on October 24, 2013, commemorates breakthrough scientific discoveries and the use of genetic engineering to make medicines that improve patients’ lives.
To celebrate, we thought it would be fun to turn some of the artifacts into a game. Play below to test your knowledge of early biotech tools! Or, just peruse all of the flashcards (all images provided by the National Museum of American History).
Hey, we all have to start somewhere. Take a tour through gene.com/biotech – there's a lot to learn!
