J. Craig Venter Institute (JCVI) scientists will demonstrate the applications of genomics science to new biologically-driven sources of energy and to uncover novel ways for mitigating the negative impacts of humans on our planet.

Recent advances in DNA sequencing technology are also providing unprecedented opportunities for comprehensive analysis of cancer genomes, exomes, transcriptomes, as well as epigenomic components.

Venter is best known for his privately backed race in 2000 against the publicly funded Human Genome Project to decode the entire human genetic blueprint. The teams shared credit for the milestone.
