Swatara Township-based JPL Integrated Communications Inc. and its Maryland-based subsidiary, d'Vinci Interactive, have been hired by the National Human Genome Research Institute to create a companion educational website for a new exhibit at the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History.

JPL acquired d’Vinci in January. The Hagerstown firm specializes in application development and e-Learning serving clients such as the National Institutes of Health, the National Park Service and the American Board of Pediatrics.

On the “Genome: Unlocking Life’s Code” exhibit, JPL will provide technical consulting, Web development support, 3-D animation, Google Analytics and search engine optimization. Initial plans for the site include an interactive timeline, a virtual tour, classroom materials and exclusive video content, among many other features, according to JPL.

The interim site — — is live and the final site will launch in June.

The exhibit focuses on the human genome and looks at human identity in the context of the natural world. The 2,500-square-foot exhibition is the product of a partnership between the museum and NHGRI, under the National Institutes of Health.
