On the verge of creating synthetic life, TED Talks- "'Can we create new life out of our digital universe?' asks Craig Venter. And his answer is, yes, and pretty soon. He walks the TED2008 audience through his latest research into 'fourth-generation fuels' -- biologically created fuels with CO2 as their feedstock. His talk covers the details of creating brand-new chromosomes using digital technology, the reasons why we would want to do this, and the bioethics of synthetic life."

J Craig Venter sequenced the human genome. Now he wants to convert DNA into a digital signal

J. Craig Venter (born October 14, 1946) is an American biologist and entrepreneur. He is known for being one of the first to sequence the human genome and for creating the first cell with a synthetic genome. He was listed on Time magazine's 2007 and 2008 Time 100 list of the most influential people in the world.

Craig Venter and team make a historic announcement: they've created the first fully functioning, reproducing cell controlled by synthetic DNA. He explains how they did it and why the achievement marks the beginning of a new era for science.

Craig Venter’s Bugs Might Save the World

Craig Venter’s Bugs Might Save the World - NYTimes.com

In the menagerie of Craig Venter’s imagination, tiny bugs will save the world. They will be custom bugs, designer bugs — bugs that only Venter can create. He will mix them up in his private laboratory from bits and pieces of DNA, and then he will release them into the air and the water, into smokestacks and oil spills, hospitals and factories and your house.
