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.
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.
Exploring a plastic version of Middle-earth is immensely satisfying in Lego The Lord of the Rings.
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 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.
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.
Scientists at the J. Craig Venter Institute have announced the creation of a synthetic cell controlled by manmade genetic instructions.
We have synthetic life! Craig Venter's new bacterium is alive and is blue... because that's what it's programmed to be. Also, Google says Happy 30th Birthday Pacman by putting a playable game into the Google banner. Tech support calls ensue.
Too busy doing lab experiments to read Crave this week? You missed out on synthetic cells, sarcasm, and tweeting cows. If only those were all part of the same experiment.
