In addition to covering the news, GNN produces additional publications to enhance public understanding of the science of genomics, including a book, “What's a Genome?” and a unique online art gallery featuring work by internationally acclaimed artists who draw their inspiration from DNA and genetics. GNN, which is supported by the J. Craig Venter Science Foundation, can be found at www.GenomeNewsNetwork.org. GNN is read by thousands of readers all over the world.
