Working on Museum exhibitions gives scientists a chance to share ideas with a
large audience. It's great to be a part of creating something that reaches a quarter of a million people. Many people have become scientists because of a
visit to a museum.
It's challenging to create an exhibition with a science like genomics. Explaining the science is difficult, and we also have to think of really special,
interesting ways to display things. With a science like paleontology, the display is much easierthe fossils tell the story. We don't have specimens like
that in genomics, so we really have to use our imaginations.
