Abstract:

Science author and broadcaster Richard Corfield travels to Valencia in Spain to interview Craig Venter, recognised as one of the leading scientists of the 21st century for his visionary work in genetic research. In 1998 Craig Venter and his private sector company succeeded in sequencing the human genome using some novel techniques coupled with sophisticated computers. Today this controversial scientist argues that CO2 in the atmosphere is the biggest problem facing our planet. He suggests that we are now in the century of biology and that synthetic chromosomes could be the new tool set used by scientists in the future; replacing the entire petrochemical industry with new biological technologies that will create new form of sustainable energy.
