Gene pioneer Dr. J. Craig Venter gives the 32nd Richard Dimbleby Lecture. One of the principal scientists who decoded the human genome is about to create the first artificial life form on Earth. So what does the future hold in A DNA-Driven World A DNA-Driven World?

"As David Dimbleby, son of the late Richard Dimbleby, states in his introduction to the lecture, Venter is widely recognised as one of the “pioneers” in this area. His achievements include the founding of Celera Genomics - a somewhat controversial contributor to the Human Genome Project; The Institute of Genomic Research; and more recently Synthetic Genomics - a company whose work has “opened the door to the creation of the first artificial life form on the planet”. According to Dimbleby, the purpose of the lecture was to hear “simply, clearly and without gimmicks” what synthetic biology might hold for the future."
