Using data from the public project, Craig Venter

Description:
Interviewee: Craig Venter. Craig Venter, leader of the private effort at Celera Genomics, speaks about his company's reliance on the public data for reassembly of the Celera sequence. (DNAi Location: Genome > The project > Players > Private project > Using data from the public project)
Transcript:
We absolutely used the mapping data that the entire human genetics community accumulated over a long period of time, for ordering, knowing which pieces would go on which chromosomes and even what order we put these million base pair long sequences in. So in that sense we absolutely relied on the public project, in fact to be fair, you know, I helped start the public genome project. Had there not been a genome project, there never would have been a Celera and there never would have been a Celera sequence.
