Not only do we know the feline genome of a social media celebrity now, we have also started to rewrite Wikipedia: Since only 17 percent of the articles in the digital encyclopedia are dedicated to important women, the MDC, together with other Berlin science institutions, organized an "Edit-a-thon". You can hear statements from the event in a podcast.
