Decades ago, a scientist tried to manipulate the genes of a particular purple petunia with the goal of making its hue deeper and richer. The experiment failed, however, resulting in petunias that were either mostly or completely white. The phenomenon was then named "cosuppression," and the length of this blurb can’t possibly contain the full history of this experiment and its aftermath, but it eventually led to breakthroughs in the treatment of cancer and HIV through gene therapy. Maybe the petunias were resentful because they were just misunderstood?

What's more, we created this design in collaboration with Alex Dainis of Helicase Media! She has a PhD in genetics from Stanford University, as well as 10 years of experience producing visual and interactive media.
