Ten years ago today, a groundbreaking paper was published in the journal Nature. It was a first full glimpse of our genetic blueprint, our DNA, made possible in part through the efforts of scientists at the Whitehead Institute Center for Genome Research (which later became part of the Broad).

Today, we commemorate this historic achievement and the scientific knowledge it has made possible.
