From DNA to Beer – A New Exhibit in the Library

The Health Sciences Library will host the traveling exhibit, From DNA to Beer: Nature in Medicine & Industry, from July 25 to September 4, 2016. This exhibit explores the partnership between science and industry to develop techniques using and modifying microorganisms, 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. The exhibit, on loan from the National Library of Medicine, will be accompanied by artifacts from the Library Archives.
