Meet the Species Champions at the forefront of the 25 Genomes project!

25 Genomes so far: hundreds of questions, thousands of public votes and more than 80 live chats between schools and the 42 Species Champions.

Meeting the champions isn’t just for schools, though – you too can hear their cases for sequencing in the 25 Genomes Open Live Chats.

This Wednesday 29th November, you’re invited to join the drop-in Live Chats, happening in every Zone.

From 8pm-9pm, join the Species Champions for live chats, talking to any-and-everyone about what makes their species the perfect candidate for having its genome sequenced! Want to find out whether it takes longer to sequence the DNA of bigger organisms, how global warming is affecting species or even to know what a genome is?

Join a chat and find out about the species in the running and DNA sequencing.



How to take part

  1. If you’ve not already registered an account, simply connect with your preferred social media profile on the homepage.
