Future of genomics

Here is a “jaw-dropping” short lecture by Craig Venter on what’s going on in contemporary genomics. Fascinating stuff, especially to me, since my wife Jeannine just got a job with a genomics center on campus. (We say she’s working on the “Huenemann Jeanninome” project.)

Looks pretty clear that creating artifical life isn’t too far away.

About Huenemann

Curious about the ways humans use their minds and hearts to distract themselves from the meaninglessness of life.

    Have you ever heard of the book The Age of Spiritual Machines,by Ray Kurzweil? If you have not, and are interested in this kind of stuff-A.I. and such, I can not recommend it enough.
