Abstract:

In 2001, Craig Venter made headlines for sequencing the human genome. In 2003, he started mapping the ocean's biodiversity. And more recently he's created the first synthetic life forms: microorganisms that can produce alternative fuels. In this TEDTalk, the renowned genomics pioneer - one of Time's 100 Most Influential People in the World (2007) - takes a break from his epic round-the-world expedition to talk about the millions of genes his team has discovered so far in its quest to map the ocean's biodiversity.
