Genographic Project Online

I did a bunch of work on a nice little Flash piece for an IBM – National Geographic collaboration. It is a really cool project where the goal is to provide research on the geographic origins of the world’s different ethnic groups. Through this project, you can purchase a participation kit where you can provide a sample of your DNA from a swab of your cheek, and National Geographic will send you back information showing how your genetic ancestors travelled the world to get to where you are today. You can find out more about the project and about IBM’s role at http://www.ibm.com/genographic. Click on the main banner to launch the Flash piece. I did the ActionScript coding for the little pop-up modules, plus oversaw the project’s architecture.
