Technology and the Human Genome Project, James Watson

Description:
Interviewee: James Watson. James Watson talks about technology and the Human Genome Project.
Transcript:
At the start of the genome project people said, people won't do this boring work, it's going to be too boring. And so in a way the genome project created the need for better machines, the first machines fifteen years ago, they're about a thousand-fold improved. So it would have been a much bigger room if we'd had the machines of fifteen years ago.
