This is a blinded experiment, meaning that none of the citizen scientists conducting the experiment know which ears are GMO and which are not. The ear numbers and identities are in a encrypted file that anyone can download. Once the experiment is complete and all of the data has been collected, the encryption password will be shared on this website.
