Genetics pioneer Craig Venter has news from the frontiers of biology.
Craig Venter, who led the charge to decypher human DNA, is now on the green hunt. He's looking for a double-wammy: take CO2 in the atmosphere and convert it into fuel (rather than fuel creating CO2 as is mostly the case today).
Craig Venter helps launch the Archon Genomics X Prize, which will award $10 million to the first team to sequence the genomes of 100 centenarians to a level of accuracy never before achieved and at relatively low cost.
Controversial genetics researcher reveals more about his motivation and research.
Scientists at the J. Craig Venter Institute have announced the creation of a synthetic cell controlled by manmade genetic instructions.
Largest ever, man-made DNA structure created, according to Craig Venter Institute
Craig Venter recently announced that he had modified a living organism by replacing its DNA with a synthetically-created genome. Today we're talking about this new technology, how it works, and what it means for all of us.
Genetics company Illumina has unveiled the HiSeq X, a new supercomputer that the company claims will cut the cost of genome sequencing to just US$1000.
Last month, Craig Venter announced that he had modified a living organism by replacing its DNA with a synthetically-created genome. Today we're talking with Dr. Kiki Sanford and Dr. Mark Bedau about this new technology. Listen to the show to learn not just how it works, but what it means for all of us.
The species was changed. But it's controversial.
