Interviewee: Craig Venter.
Craig Venter talks about techniques and the new biology.
The original genome project had the goal of doing E. coli, yeast, mouse and human, that was it. So it was thought that one bacterial genome would be enough, sort of define that world. It's so absurd looking back, we, we now have over a hundred microbial genomes in the time we were only supposed to have one because of this new technique. And it's changed our view of biology so dramatically having this diversity of information.
