ABOUT FIB
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 025: From the Human Genome Project to Space Exploration with Dr. George Church (Part I)

    Dr. George Church explores the fantastic world of genetics from the Earth to Mars!

    Host: Marc Pelletier

    Guest: Dr. George Church, Professor of Genetics and Director of the Center for Computational Genetics, Harvard Medical School, Cambridge, MA.

    In this episode, we are very fortunate to have one of the most inventive and visionary geneticists of our time. Even early in his career, he showed signs of great scientific intuition as he played a key role in initiating and contributing to the Human Genome Project.

    When Dr. Church agreed to be on the show, I knew that we would be talking extreme biotech - but I really, and I mean REALLY had no idea!!! And, since we only scratched the surface here, this will be Part I of II.

      He has vast knowledge on this field. Scientist have been working on this for many decades. Genetics is an interesting field and to read it in context with other planets and their life sure makes it amazing. Thanks for sharing this information.

    Thanks for another interesting show!

    This is a bit offtopic, but I recently listened to one of the older episodes (FiB 2, I believe) which reminded me of Dr. de Gray's much debated "strategy for negligible senescence". I believe quite a few listeners would find it interesting to hear your thoughts on SENS - even more so if you were able to get de Gray on the show explaining why he believes that SENS might really work.

    If I remember it right the official site for SENS used to be (and probably still is) sens.org
