Synthetic Life Video Presentation

This is a 20 min TEDMED video of Craig Venter who talks about his work on digitizing the genetic code, synthetic genomics and software making its own hardware — all with the goal of creating synthetic life.

Craig Venter points out himself that things such as moving genetic software across the branches of life, and thereby turning one species into another, may sound not only like complete science fiction but even like genomic alchemy, yet the science behind designing synthetic life is well on its way and progress is advancing constantly.
