Craig Venter, Founder, Chairman and President, J. Craig Venter Institute will be in town Thursday, May 1, 2008.

Scientific Presentation – 130 Budig Hall
5:30 pm – “A Genomic View of Life”
Public Presentation – Woodruff Auditorium (Kansas Union)
During this past year Craig Venter has publish his autobiography A Life Decoded: My Genome, My Life. It is a good read, and a different perspective on the sequencing of the human genome than you may have seen in the Nova’s Cracking the Code of Life or read in Nobel laureate John Sulston’s The Common Thread (a good read too).
I hope to see you there, but if you can’t make it because you’re too busy celebrating with the workers of the world, you can view a recent lecture of Craig’s at Oxford, Genomics: From Humans to the Environment, or view/listen to interviews at bloggingheads.tv or the Guardian (a number to choose from).
