Coming Soon!!!

This netcast explores the rapidly changing world of biotech, with a penchant towards getting a better understanding of who we are and where we are going. The living world will soon be a true substrate for engineering. Our world will change, and so will we. 
We bring a first hand account from the scientists that are moving us into this new technological era: the era of biotech.

    FiB Episode 016 - 21st Century Biotech: Systems Biology

    Dr. Lee Hood, inventor of the DNA sequencer, talks about the next revolution in biotech: Systems Biology

    Hosts: Marc Pelletier
    Guest: Dr. Lee Hood is the President of the Institute for Systems Biology

    It is not every day that we get to speak with someone who's work has been so pivotal that it has directly ushered in a new technological era.

    As you may know from listening to this netcast, what we are really trying to do is get is an understanding of how life works and what it means to be human, down to the molecular level. To answer this question, scientists around the world have embarked on genomic projects that enable us to to compare our genome to that of bacteria, mice, worms, chimpanzees, and even to our closest evolutionary relative, the Neanderthal. Our guest, Dr. Leroy Hood, has made this possible: and it is not an understatement to say that his inventions have truly enabled molecular biology. A few decades back he invented among other things-- the DNA sequencer-- and the incredible new era of genomics had began.
