The climate is raging.

Too much rain or not enough, fiery hot then furiously cold, our planet is struggling. Especially plants, and we depend on them for food. Are there humans acting fast to help plants adapt?

Meet the Cold Spring Harbor Lab (CSHL) plant biologists working at top speed—decoding and editing plant genomes to withstand climate change.

What is decoding? (Hint: sequencing and analyzing DNA data). How do scientists engineer genomes? (Hint: with gene editing tools like CRISPR). Are you curious to know more and learn what you can do?

Scientists can’t save the plants alone. We need to be part of the solution by becoming genome-literate citizens. Follow a person named Artist (and author Lynn Fellman) on this true-story adventure, and you’ll be a powerful genome-literate citizen for a sustainable future.
