UC Davis Professor Harris Lewin is embarking on the Earth BioGenome Project, an ambitious 10-year effort to map the DNA of every living thing on earth. With a team of researchers, he’ll begin compiling the genetic information of all the world’s species in hopes of saving biodiversity for future generations.

Lewin joins Insight to talk about the project and why preserving biodiversity is so important.
