George Church – 2012 GET Conference
We need to sequence everyone’s genome many times, monitor the genome and the epigenome and the microbial components.
TEDx Cambridge 2012 Talk
George Church considers recent advances in genomics and personalized medicine and asks: as we seek to eliminate disorders like schizophrenia and dyslexia, or even rare genetic diseases, how should we think about preserving human diversity?
Craig Venter Jan 2011 Talk
J. Craig Venter is a biologist most known for his contributions, in 2001, of sequencing the first draft human genome and in 2007 for the first complete diploid human genome. In 2010 he and his team announced success in constructing the first synthetic bacterial cell. His present work focuses on creating synthetic biological organisms and applications of this work, and discovering genetic diversity in the world’s oceans.
