(Edge) Short course on synthetic genomics

Hello -

Brockman's Edge.org continues to showcase interesting work from his cadre of leading-edge thinkers (or, as I think of them, "the smart cool-kids.") George Church and Craig Venter taught a 6-hour course on synthetic genomics, presented at Edge.org, for free.

I didn't make it through all six hours, though what I watched I found really absorbing. I also admit I find the selection of students equally fascinating - they introduce themselves in the first minutes of part one. If you are a frequent visitor to Edge.org, or watch TED videos, or, really, go to any of the "conferences by big thinkers," they'll be familiar (though mostly West Coast) names.
