MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., April 20, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- To celebrate DNA Day, Khan Academy, the world's online classroom, and 23andMe, a leading personal genetics company, are working together to promote the importance of genetics education. 23andMe's Genetics 101 and Human Prehistory 101 video series are now available on KhanAcademy.org.

DNA Day commemorates the day in 1953 when James Watson, Francis Crick, and colleagues published papers in the journal Nature on the structure of DNA.  Additionally, on the same date in 2003 it was declared that the Human Genome Project was very close to complete.

"The paper publications in the Nature journal and the Human Genome Projects are both landmark achievements, and more people should know about them. These events helped launch the field of genetics, and this field is a critical force that will shape our society in the future," said Sal Khan, Founder of Khan Academy.

Khan Academy is changing education for the better by providing a free world-class education for anyone anywhere. 23andMe is dedicated to helping individuals understand their own genetic information through DNA analysis technologies and web-based interactive tools.  The company's Personal Genome Service® enables individuals to gain deeper insights into their ancestry and inherited traits. Together, the two organizations are celebrating DNA Day by focusing on genetics and what individuals can learn from exploring their own DNA.

"A solid foundation in genetics is increasingly important for everyone," said Anne Wojcicki, CEO of 23andMe. "Our understanding of how DNA infor
