Life at the speed of light : from the double helix to the dawn of digital life by J. Craig Venter( Book )

16 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 1,235 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 2010, scientists led by Venter became the first to successfully create "synthetic life," putting humankind at the threshold of actually writing the genetic code for designing new species to help us adapt and evolve for long-term survival. He presents a fascinating and authoritative study of this emerging field from the inside, detailing its origins, current challenges and controversies, and projected effects on our lives

A timely book for DNA researchers, Automated DNA Sequencing and Analysis reviews and assesses the state of the art of automated DNA sequence analysis-from the construction of clone libraries to the developmentof laboratory and community databases. It presents the methodologies and strategies of automated DNA sequence analysis in a way that allows them to be compared and contrasted. By taking a broad view of the process of automated sequence analysis, the present volume bridges the gap between the protocols supplied with instrument and reaction kits and the finalized data presented in th

Interview with Craig Venter( Visual )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 136 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Science author and broadcaster Richard Corfield travels to Valencia in Spain to interview Craig Venter, recognised as one of the leading scientists of the 21st century for his visionary work in genetic research. In 1998 Craig Venter and his private sector company succeeded in sequencing the human genome using some novel techniques coupled with sophisticated computers. Today this controversial scientist argues that CO2 in the atmosphere is the biggest problem facing our planet. He suggests that we are now in the century of biology and that synthetic chromosomes could be the new tool set used by scientists in the future; replacing the entire petrochemical industry with new biological technologies that will create new form of sustainable energy

Life at the speed of light : from the double helix to the dawn of digital life by J. Craig Venter( Recording )

8 editions published between 2013 and 2015 in English and held by 74 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The science of synthetic genomics will have a profound impact on human existence, including chemical and energy generation, health, clean water and food production, environmental control, and possibly even evolution. Venter presents a fascinating and authoritative study of this emerging field from the inside, detailing its origins, current challenges and controversies, and projected effects on human life
A life decoded : my genome, my life by J. Craig Venter( Book )

22 editions published between 2007 and 2014 in 5 languages and held by 63 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The story of the man who achieved one of the greatest feats of our era--the mapping of the human genome. After nearly flunking out of high school, Venter went to Vietnam, where the life and death struggles he encountered as a medic piqued his interest in science and medicine. In 1984 he joined the National Institutes of Health, introduced novel techniques for rapid gene discovery, and left in 1991 to form his own nonprofit genomics research center, where he sequenced the first genome in history in 1995. In 1998 he announced that he would successfully sequence the human genome years sooner, and for far less money, than the government-sponsored Human Genome Project would--a prediction he kept in 2001. The tale involves as much politics (personal and political) as science. He also describes the other startling projects he has conducted since.--From publisher description
Annotation of the Celera human genome assembly( Visual )

1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 59 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Meet the press( Visual )

1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 58 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On this edition of Meet the Press: Bob Graham and Orrin Hatch discuss the prescription drug coverage bill put forth by the House Republicans; Francis Collins, Craig Venter, Henry Waxman, and Arthur Caplan discuss the mapping of the human genome and the ethical dilemma that will follow; insights and analysis from Bob Woodward, Al Hunt, and Stewart Taylor
DNA( Visual )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 50 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1990, a massive enterprise was launched to map the individual genes in the human genome. Known as the Human Genome Project, it soon turned into a race and a feud. This program tracks the progress of the endeavor, detailing the scientific innovations that led to its completion, as well as its political and economic impact. Among those who discuss the project are initial rivals Francis Collins and J. Craig Venter; Dr. John Sulston; Sir Alex Jeffreys, the discoverer of DNA fingerprinting; Nobel Laureates Fred Sanger and Jim Watson; and former President Bill Clinton
60 minutes( Visual )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 48 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What's next for J. Craig Venter? Meet the man whose team mapped the human genome and created 'synthetic life.' Steve Kroft reports
Life running out of control by Bertram Verhaag( Visual )

6 editions published between 2004 and 2010 in English and held by 45 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Explores the possibility of a future in which physical strength and assertiveness are the topselling items on "baby menus" and other frightening implications of market-driven genetic engineering. Showing how the government-funded Human Genome Project has become highly lucrative for pharmaceutical companies, the film examines the cases of exploitative gene harvesting in Iceland and Peru. Interviews with prominent scientists and activists highlight the dangers of patenting genetic data and an absence of public discourse about artificial gene selection
