Craig Venter gives a keynote talk at a DARPA event.
He describes the work to get a highly precise set of genome sequences. Genomes have been sequenced using methods with more errors. Now they are going back to sequence with longer and more precise reads.
He discusses various projects for artificial chromosomes and cells.
He describes work to rewrite the pig genome to increase the supply of transplant organs 100 times.
He describes developing a better biotech toolbox.
He describes converting digital information into biology.
They are working on antimicrobial phage genome engineering.
They are working to decode the brain using genomics and better brain structure analysis.
Working to correct genetic errors in stem cells.
All of this is towards genome engineering.
