“Right now, oil is being isolated around the globe, and there is a major effort in shipping, trucking and otherwise transporting that oil around to a very finite number of refineries. Biology allows us to make these same fuels in a much more distributed fashion.”

― Craig Venter

“We are going from reading our genetic code to the ability to write it. That gives us the hypothetical ability to do things never contemplated before.”

― Craig Venter

“We have 200 trillion cells, and the outcome of each of them is almost 100 percent genetically determined. And that’s what our experiment with the first synthetic genome proves, at least in the case of really simple bacteria. It’s the interactions of all those separate genetic units that give us the physiology that we see.”

“There were no TV musicals until we did Bette Midler ‘Gypsy,’ and the success of that opened the door for us to do the rest.”
