Inside CSU’s Doomsday Vault | Colorado Editorial Photography

Seeds are the currency in this impenetrable vault, and Noah’s ark is the mission. Billions of seeds are stored in nitrogen cooled cryogenic chambers, serving as an archive of the world’s genetic variability within plant DNA. During a massive disease or plant extinction, this laboratory will repopulate the world with the important members of the plant kingdom including: corn, tomatoes, and even African prairie grasses.
