Working on the public Human Genome Project, Craig Venter
Interviewee: Craig Venter.
Craig Venter speaks about the public sector's reaction to his plans to sequence the genome at a private company, Celera Genomics.
(DNAi Location: Genome > The Project > Players > Money > Threatening their funding)
I think the scientists who claimed that they were going to do this public program almost started to believe it was their birthright to get all this money and take the next several decades to do this project. I think the scientists were around this public effort because it was a massive effort to get billions of dollars in committed funding. This was the first time this has ever happened in biology.
