Genes in Motion was a unique program held during National DNA Day 2007. It was put together by researchers and educators from the National Institutes of Health, in collaboration with dancers and choreographers from the Liz Lerman Dance Exchange. On April 30, 2007, students and teachers from Maryland, Virginia and Washington D.C. gathered for a unique day of exploring genetics topics through dance. Students worked with dancers and choreographers from the Liz Lerman Dance Exchange (www.danceexchange.org) and genome researchers from the NHGRI to create novel dance routines to explain tough concepts in genetics, such as mitosis and mutation. At the end of the day, students performed their pieces for each other.
