Craig Venter walks his audience through his latest research and promises that we'll soon be able to create new life out of our digital universe in this riveting TEDTalk. Venter made headlines in 2001 as the man who led the private effort to sequence the human genome and he was also on Time magazine's 2007 list of the 100 Most Influential People in the World. When he's not on board a 92-foot yacht decoding the genes of the ocean's unknown microorganisms, he can be found working at the J. Craig Venter Institute, a nonprofit dedicated to researching genomics and exploring their societal implications.
