The J. Craig Venter Institute's Summer Internship program is a paid 8-week program for students interested in genomics. Under the supervision of a mentor, students conduct research in genomic medicine, infectious diseases, plat, microbial and environmental genomics, synthetic biology and biological energy, bioinformatics, and software engineering. Students must be 16 years old to apply, have a B average and demonstrate a strong interest in te chosen subject.
The year is 2030. In a high-security containment lab, scientists gathered around a towering machine, eagerly awaiting the first look at a newly discovered bacterium on Mars. With a series of beeps, the machine—a digital-to-biological converter, or DBC—signaled that it had successfully received the bacterium’s digitized genomic file. Using a chemical cocktail comprised of the …
The Genome War: How Craig Venter Tried to Capture the Code of Life and Save the World
J Craig Venter sequenced the human genome. Now he wants to convert DNA into a digital signal
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 (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.

Three Questions for J. Craig Venter. I think that His Name is enough to Read his Innovative Answers Gene research and Silicon Valley-style computing are starting to merge. Genome scientist and entrepreneur J. Craig Venter is best known for being the first person to sequence his own genome, back in 2001.
J. Craig Venter: Humans now have the ability to control evolution, though perhaps not yet the wisdom | Dr. J. Craig Venter discusses what the near future holds for the world of synthetic biology and our understanding of the human genome.
Sweet! Very interesting. In 2001, Craig Venter made headlines for sequencing the human genome. In 2003, he started mapping the ocean's biodiversity. And now he's created the first synthetic lifeforms — microorganisms that can produce alternative fuels. Craig Venter | Speaker | TED.com
