I fixed this to add an “are,” oops and sorry
so i undersold the conclusions because i always undersell conclusions because science doesn’t come to conclusions. this specific research is exciting because it’s the first time scientists have sequenced the durian genome, and boom, it really does look super weird and has all these places where its stink-making…
