Craig Venter Wants to Solve the World’s Energy Crisis

Craig Venter Wants to Solve the World’s Energy Crisis | Complex Insight  - Understanding our world | Scoop.it

Good Article on Craig Venter By Thomas Goetz.  in 1992 Venter left the National Institutes of Health (NIH)  to head the nonprofit Institute for Genomic Research. Six years later he founded Celera Genomics, a rival to the NIH project that aimed to sequence the full code of the human genome. In 2001 Celera officially “tied” the NIH to the genome finish line, though the company’s sequence was more than a bit further along.  In 2004 he sailed around the world, discovering thousands of new species and sequencing millions of new genes. In 2007 he unveiled his own genome and  in 2010 he announced the first successful synthesis of life—a unique critter borne from two distinct organisms, thus proving for the first time that it is indeed possible to create new organisms for specific purposes and functions.  More at http://bit.ly/JEbBxS
