To assert that J. Craig Venter is passionate about synthetic genomics is to understate. At the dawn of the new millennium, he was so frustrated as the lagging pace of the Human Genome Project that he scrambled for private funding to race them. His efforts succeeded to a surprising measure, though eventually his altruism cost him his job. In this book, he give readers a speed of light tutorial on this new exciting branch of biological science, telling us what we need to know what could be next great leap of humankind: the widespread creation of synthetic life.
