Digital book: “We Want Our Genome Story”

The illustrated story: When Artist asks, “What is a genome?” she follows the “Wonderment Seeker” path to fascinating scientific research. When she asks, “Can science fix my genes if I get sick?” Artist takes the “Storm Chaser” path to get help with her genetic disease. Will Artist get her Genome Story and return to her studio to draw and write about her journey? Here’s a hint: Whether young or young-at-heart, we’re all students exploring our genomes together.

The science story: There are links to stuff you don’t want to miss — explanations of current research, podcasts, videos, scientific papers, and interviews with scientists. With easy-to-understand content, you’ll learn how fantastic our genomes genuinely are.
