3. Have fun!

#1. There is a LOT of information stored in our DNA so researchers like the Code Crackers require a lot of computer power to analyse it!

How many computers are in this cluster the Code Crackers use to do their research?

#2. In June 2021, the Genome Generators were checking that there is enough of each sample left to be processed.

How much of a sample do the team require to allow for a single extraction of DNA?

#3. ๐ŸŒ๐Ÿงณ Where did the Invertebrate Investigators head in summer 2021 to look new invertebrates for their research?

#4. โœ๐Ÿ“ฐIn May 2021, the researchers in one of the teams were busy being featured in two articles! (Weโ€™d recommend giving these a read)!

Which of the following were titles of these articles?

Select all that apply:

#5. By what process does Sahr from the Plant and Fungal Explorers estimate the size of the genomes of the plants? ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿงฌ
