The Human Genome Project was more than just sequencing, Ari Patrinos

Description:
Interviewee: Ari Patrinos. Ari Patrinos, director of the US Department of Energy's sequencing effort, talks about the public genome project's aims that extended beyond those of the private project. (DNAi Location: Genome > The project > Players > Public consortium > More than the sequence)
Transcript:
The Human Genome Project as advertised and ultimately sold was a lot more than just delivering on the sequence. It was doing everything that the sequence would also allow us to do. And also a very significant component of the program was in fact the education part, so in a way the Human Genome Project wasn't just delivering on the sequence, but also creating this new generation of molecular biologists who would take all this wonderful information, this powerful information, and advance the field of biology with all its applications, broadly speaking, in universities and laboratories around the world.
