The Friday Finale – Live Chat open from 12pm – 3pm this Friday

The end is nigh! After five brilliant weeks of over 130 chats and 500 questions for the 42 species, 25 Genomes will be drawing to a close.

Voting will close at 3pm GMT this Friday 8th December, when we’ll announce the five winning species who will have their genome fully sequenced by the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute.

Until then, there’s still time to get involved.


Public Drop-In Chats, Friday 12pm-3pm

Thousands of students and members of the public have already taken part, and people as far afield as California chatted with the Species Champions in our public chats last week.

If you missed out on the public chats, or want to ask more, we’re holding drop-in Live Chats in every Zone this Friday from 12pm-3pm, just before voting ends. They are open to everyone – school students and the general public. What better way to spend your Friday afternoon?


How to take part in the Drop-In Chats

  1. If you’ve not already registered an account, simply connect with your preferred social media profile on the homepage.
  2. Then, click on the Zone you want to chat in first by clicking the “Join” link on the side of the page. You’ll need to do this in every Zone you want to take part in
  3. You’ll then be taken to your profile in that Zone. Just click ‘Chat’ at the top of the page!

You can drop into the Chats at any point between 12:00-15:00 GMT on Friday the 8th December.


Have you voted yet?

We’ve already had thousands of votes from students and the public, but with all the species very much still in the running every vote counts.

Which species deserves its genome sequenced? You have a vote in each of the five zones – have your say in the future of genetic research!
