Venter on the Colbert Report
Last night on the Colbert Report, Stephen Colbert interviewed Craig Venter about his work with the human genome and the potential future impact of related discoveries, including discussion of possible conflicts of interest associated with commercial development of genome-related initiatives (e.g. synthetic genomics).
A little history about controversy etc. surrounding Venter's work is available in this Time magazine article and this article from Wired magazine.
