    Futurist: Juan Enriquez: who, quoting his TED http://www.ted.com/speakers/juan_enriquez.html" [Broken]:

    "thinks and writes about the profound changes that genomics and other life sciences will cause in business, technology, politics and society."


    This one was filmed in 2003 and posted April 2007, not sure why, it would have been more interesting six years down the road...


    01:40 3.2 billion base pairs, includes history of where they have been for past 1.5 billion years​
    02:50 Discovery of http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1fiJupfbSpg&feature=player_embedded": Watson and Crick: 1957​
    03:00 The New Zoo​
    03:40 http://www.genomenewsnetwork.org/articles/02_01/Sizing_genomes.shtml" [Broken] 200 times larger than human genome​
    04:20 Nuclear reactor bacteria discovered, rebuilds itself everyday​
    05:15 Largest bacteria, seen with naked eye (about size of a period)​
    07:00 Breeding near extinct species​
    08:00 Closing gene gaps, may revive extinct species...​
    10:40 Changing all the rules​
    15:20 HER-2 receptor ? without it http://jnci.oxfordjournals.org/cgi/content/full/91/15/1329" [Broken] treatment for breast cancer is useless​
    15:50 Library of Congress total data is exceeded every month by a good genetics company every month​
    16:20 Huge data requires: super exponential growth of processing power to process it​
    17:20 New map of genetically literate world (circa 2003)​
    17:55 Life is happening: Salk, Scripts Institute, UCSD, San Diego​
    18:40 In knowledge based society difference between richest/poorest: 427:1 literate in Life Code, versus agricultural society 5:1​
    19:30 Most productive nation on earth per capita: Luxembourg (circa 2003)​
    21:10 Fragmentation of countries, trends...​

    Personal observation: Genomic Data, Particle Collision Data collected at the LHC demand computing power in the super exponential range... necessary for rapid discoveries and advances in our understanding of human disease and our physical origins.​

    Enjoy: Rhody...
