Sequencing Life on Earth, One Eukaryote at a Time
The Earth BioGenome Project (EBP), described as a “moonshot” project for biology, aims to sequence, catalog and characterize the genomes of the 1.8 million named eukaryotes on Earth, in just 10 years. Technology Networks spoke to the scientists leading the project to learn about its progress and how it will help the Earth's biodiversity crisis.
