Although DNA Day was made into an official observance by the U.S. Congress, it is the NGHRI (National Human Genome Research Institute) who seem to organise events and speakers to go into halls and speak to both students and the general public who wish to find out more about DNA. The day commemorates the 50 year anniversary of James Watson and Francis Crick’s discovery (and published article) of the Double Helix, as well as the completion of the Genome Project which took 13 years to complete.

The Human Genome Project was completed in April 2003 and this day is to honour that, as well as the discovery of the Double Helix.
