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.

    Futures in Biotech 54: Personal Genome Project - Leo's Genome?

    Hosts: Marc Pelletier and Leo Laporte

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

    We are now at the crossroads of Genomics and Personalized Medicine. Dr. Church is forging the way. Church and his team at the Personal Genome Project hope to sequence 100,000 human genomes within the next few years. These people will be able to make medical decisions based on their molecular anatomy rather than their 'family history'. Moreover, the scientific community will have an enormous database in which they can mine. This will inevitably will lead to a better understanding of the molecular basis of disease. Church and his team will change medicine as we know it.

      This leads for the medicine. There are different dishes which are resolved by the process of latest medicine. The genome projects hopes to more than 100,000 genome with in next few years. This making of molecular basis disease works for the people.

    Is this Joule Unlimited patent for “a proprietary organism” – a genetically adapted E. coli bacterium – that feeds solely on carbon dioxide and excretes liquid hydrocarbons: diesel fuel, jet fuel and gasoline for real?

    George Church is one of the co-founders! Genius, if real.

    I think it's possible... Will have to read more.

    Yes. With Church onboard, definitely.
