Everything that’s alive has a genome. On this episode of The Show About Science, we go behind the scenes at The Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History where scientists are working to preserve and catalog the DNA of life on Earth. Our guest is Vanessa González, a computational genomic scientist at The Smithsonian’s Global Genome Initiative (GGI).
