Whether it’s unraveling the genetic story of evolution or the molecular mechanisms of birdsong, these videos highlight our understanding of how complex animal life evolved through changes in our genetic material. Watch Erich Jarvis’s video.

The Earth BioGenome Project aims to sequence, catalog and characterize the genomes of all of Earth’s eukaryotic biodiversity over a period of ten years. Watch Harris Lewin, Professor of Evolution and Ecology at the University of California, Davis, make the case that the Earth BioGenome Project would deliver returns to human welfare, biodiversity conservation, and our understanding of biology comparable to the Human Genome Project.
