Genome Pioneer, X Prize Founder Tackle Aging - NBC News

Genome Pioneer, X Prize Founder Tackle Aging - NBC News | e-merging Knowledge | Scoop.it

Craig Venter, who managed to make science both lucrative and glamorous with his pioneering approach to gene sequencing and synthetic biology, is taking on a new venture: aging.

He has joined forces with the founder of the X Prize and an expert in cell therapy to launch on Tuesday a new company called Human Longevity Inc. The man who once took off on his personal yacht to sample all the microscopic life in the seas plans to leverage some of the most fashionable new scientific approaches to figure out what makes us sick and old.

The San Diego-based company will tackle aging using gene sequencing; stem cell approaches; the collection of bacteria and other life forms that live in and on us called the microbiome; and the metabolome, which includes the byproducts of life called metabolites.

They’ll start out with what they are calling the largest human sequencing operation in the world.

“We are building a lab to a scale never attempted (before),” Venter told NBC News.

Venter first shot to fame when he raced with government scientists to finish the first map of all human DNA, called the human genome. Venter, himself a former government scientist, annoyed his former colleagues with a brash new approach to gene sequencing that was much faster but far less accurate, in their opinion.

Mr Venter seems credible and has excellent track record, so I wouldn't be surprised if his plans would come to fruition
