Our call for verses to help us communicate our science yielded several poems, a couple of which even met the writing challenges we set. We’ve shared these on social media and we hope the muse continues to inspire as we look forward to receiving more poems about genomics, energy and environment.
- “Ode to a Gutless Worm” by Caitlin Youngquist
- Doggerel by Lindsay Peet
- “The Hand that Wrote the Code” by Jim Tripp
- Untitled by TDK Reddy. He may not have been able to come up with a title, but he certainly managed to reference a plethora of our projects.
- Limerick by Daniel Levine
- “A Snapshot in Time” by Jyothi Mallajosyula
- “The Naming of Bugs” by Devaki Bhaya

- “Energy in the Trees” by Kelsey Wood. In 10 rhyming lines, this poem met our “Marking a Decade of the Community Science Program” Challenge.
