Gilbert's approach to synthesizing insulin, David Goeddel
Interviewee: David Goeddel.
David Goeddel talks about how another group was trying to make insulin.
(DNAi Location: Manipulation > Production > Players > David Goeddel > The other strategy)
So the approach at least as far as we were aware, that the Gilbert group was following, was to isolate a natural gene or a copy of a natural gene for human insulin, and then they of course would have the cloning of it in the expression. But the starting point was very different, using natural DNA as composed to synthetic DNA... compared to synthetic DNA.
