The Next Big Thing Scientists all around the world are helping with a new project called the Microbial Genome Project. They are mapping the DNA of many new species of microbes. They are also investigating microbe communities to understand how they all work together. Microbes have lived in every imaginable place on Earth for millions of years and may hold clues to how life began on our planet. Sorcerer II took a two-year global journey, catching microbes for genetic sequencing. In the Lab Around the World The Sorcerer II is a sailboat that was turned into a research lab.

Being able to mix genes from different species is already changing how we eat and live. The ability to control DNA has given us new crops, including plants that produce more food. Researchers have created plants that help clean up poisons in our environment. Scientists have been able to raise healthier livestock. Some people think we should not alter DNA and genetic material, however. They fear we may produce something bad for our health or the health of our environment. Working with DNA is a balancing act for scientists.
