🧬 The starting point

This month, we’re kicking off Schools @ Darwin Tree of Life!

What’s this all about?

The Darwin Tree of Life project is sequencing the genomes of all 60,000 species of eukaryotic organisms in Britain and Ireland.

Meet scientists and researchers from the institutions involved in making it possible.

Ask the questions you’re curious about.

Develop your independent research and study skills before you head to university.

You can get a behind-the-scenes look at a cutting-edge science project that hopes to transform the way we do biology, conservation and biotechnology.

Take part in a live Chat

On Monday 15 March at 1pm, take part in the very first live Chat with some of the teams involved in making the Darwin Tree of Life project happen.

Whether you want to check in on progress, learn how you get involved in big projects, or have any other burning questions – this is the place.

After that, live Chats will take place on Mondays at 1pm, and Wednesdays at 4pm. Go to the live Chat ❯

Challenge yourself

If you’re ready to challenge yourself, have a go at the independent activities. This is your chance to start researching independently, and guiding your own study-time – just like you will at uni. They’ll be updated each term, so don’t forget to check back and keep on top of updates from the Darwin Tree of Life project. Take a look at the first activity ❯

Stay up-to-date

You’ll also get updates from teams as they make their way through sequencing and annotating the genomes of 60,000 eukaryotic organisms in Britain and Ireland. You can get up-to-date now by reading the March 2021 Darwin Tree of Life newsletter ❯
