Advancing science and medicine, Craig Venter

Description:
Interviewee: Craig Venter. Craig Venter talks about advancing science and medicine.
Transcript:
Well it was a threat to the old way of doing things, it was not a threat in terms of what the goals of the genome project were. You know, we were doing this 'cause we wanted to advance science, we wanted to get more rapid cancer treatments, change the way discoveries were made, this was being done as a public benefit, scientific benefit project, not as a long-term means to fund laboratories.
