MUSEUM | 'Genome: Unlocking Life's Code' 

People have always told me I look just like my mother. No offense to her (she takes none), but I just don't see it. But the genetics are definitely there. That's part of the focus of "Genome: Unlocking Life's Code," a new exhibit opening this week at the Rochester Museum and Science Center. The exhibit takes a closer look at the components that make up every living thing in the universe — and how they separate us from everything else.

Your genome not only allows you to see where you came from, but scientists now know it can be a roadmap to your future — especially when it comes to your health. Explore how the tiny code inside all of us maps out diversity, extinction, and more.

The exhibit opens Friday, January 26. RMSC (657 East Avenue) is open Monday through Saturday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.; and Sunday, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Admission is $14 for adults, $13 for seniors and college students (with ID) and $12 for kids ages 3 to 18. Children under 3 are free. 271-4320; rmsc.org.
