Notable Sapiens: Craig Venter

Craig Venter is one of the foremost geneticists on the scientific scene. His company, Celera Genomics, tied with the public Human Genome Project to complete a rough draft human genome in 2001. He has made a career of high-profile projects that push the envelope of genetic technology, and is currently heading up two projects to synthesize life and collect genetic diversity on a Darwinesque Caribbean voyage.

He currently heads the Institute for Genomic Research and the Center for the Advancement of Genomics.

Venter is another pioneer whose curiosity and daring are pushing our species to the next level.
