Join Curatorial Assistant Nisa Beceriklisoy to learn about a hidden gem of the Museum, the Ambrose Monell Cryo Collection, which houses a vast library of frozen tissues from bald eagles to humpback whales. Using liquid nitrogen, this highly organized cryogenic collection allows for long-term DNA (and RNA) preservation. In this era of massive species loss, conserving genetic information is of paramount importance. Children age 7 and up are invited to discover how Nisa helps preserve our tissues and keep them organized, and how other scientists contribute to and learn from our library.Buy tickets/get more info now
