April 25 is DNA Day, celebrated on this day because of the anniversary of two important discoveries:
Publication of an article by Francis Crick and James Watson on April 25, 1953, in which they proposed that DNA molecules have a double helix structure, in the scientific journal Nature.
Completion of the Human Genome Project on April 25, 2003, two and a half years ahead of schedule.
