Natural History Museum of Utah Lecture Series 2014 Keynote: J. Craig Venter, Ph.D.


This is the eighth NHMU Lecture Series presented by the Natural History Museum of Utah. This year’s theme is “Pushing the Boundaries of Life” and the keynote lecture will be delivered by J. Craig Venter, Ph.D. Dr. Venter is a pioneer of the genomics revolution. His work on synthetic biology truly embodies the theme of “pushing the boundaries of life.”

Essentially, Venter is seeking to “write the software of life” to create microbes designed by humans rather than only through evolution. The potential benefits and risks of this new technology are enormous. It also requires us to examine, both scientifically and philosophically, the question of “What is life?” *This lecture will be broadcast live on KCPW 88.3 FM and will begin promptly at 7:00 p.m.
