ABSTRACT
This article presents an interview with genetic innovator J. Craig Venter during the 2005 conference that he organized titled Genome, Medicine, and the Environment. Venter plans to continue his emphasis on the environment in the future years. Life sciences' new sequencing technology is also tackled during the interview. According to Venter, he plans to sequence more than 150 microbes under the Marine Microbe Sequencing Project.
