"J. Craig Venter's company, Celera Genomics, decoded the human genome faster and more cheaply than a large federally-funded effort. Join host Iraq Flatow and Venter for a discussion about his philosophy and vision for genomics. Who should own the human genome?"

"Craig Venter's "minimal genome" project announced Wednesday is not about creating a new life form and probably doesn't pose much of a biowarfare threat, researchers say. The high-profile project was just funded by the US Department of Energy (DOE) with $3 million going to the Institute for Biological Energy Alternatives (IBEA), one of the non-profit research institutes Venter founded after leaving the newly profit-minded Celera Genomics early this year.

According to some scientists, the new project won't even define the minimal genomethe basic gene set required for lifebecause there can be no single minimal genome."

"But we're asking the philanthropic community to say, 'How about funding 100 genomes for patients with these diseases? Diseases that you care about or ethnogeographic groups to make sure there's sufficient diversity in the population or in some cases you yourself or your family as part of a legacy,' and everybody would have their data be part of a database that would be used for genome analysis in comparing clinical records, genotype/phenotype correlations, obviously in an anonymous fashion."

"It was misrepresented the first time in the press that this was the millionaires' genome project. Hopefully, it would not just be millionaires' genomes, although I think that would be an interesting study. I think we would find them to be remarkably similar to all the other genomes, but I think what we'd expect to happen is that there would be groups that support diseases that they really care about getting solved that they know are not going to get solved with the current paradigm..."

"Mapping and reading J. Craig Venter's genome took 15 years, $5 billion and some of the world's most sophisticated computers.

Wouldn't you, too, like your genome decoded?

Venter says he plans to offer the service, with the goal of burning individual human's entire DNA sequences onto shiny compact discs."

"Tonight's plenary panel discussion at GSAC, "The Future of DNA Sequencing: Advancing Toward the $1,000 Genome," hosted by Craig Venter and Gerald Rubin, quickly turned into a genomics version of the game show "The Price is Right."

"I had to do a little better than the thousand-dollar genome," said VisiGen Biotechnologies CEO Susan Hardin, one of the panelists, about her company's efforts to develop a single-molecule sequencing method using both a modified polymerase and nucleotides. "So we're going for the $995 genome.""

"Coming from a man whose life revolves around the study of genes, this might sound surprising: People are not the sum total of their genes.

But J. Craig Venter, former president of Celera Genomics and genome mapper extraordinaire, wants the American public to know that genes are not fate and he's launched a nonprofit organization to prove it. "

Bioinformatics will be at the core of biology in the 21st century. In fields ranging from structural biology to genomics to biomedical imaging, ready access to data and analytical tools are fundamentally changing the way investigators in the life sciences conduct research and approach problems. Complex, computationally intensive biological problems are now being addressed and promise to significantly advance our understanding of biology and medicine. No biological discipline will be unaffected by these technological breakthroughs.
