From the Ted Talk "Juan Enriquez: Using biology to rethink the energy challenge"

Unscramble the Blue Letters

And as you think of biomaterials, this guy — who did part of the sequencing of the amuhn genome, who just doubled the databases of genes and proteins known on trahe by sailing around the world — has been thinking about how you tcurtesur this. And there's a series of smart people thinking about this. And they've been putting together companies like Synthetic Genomics, like, a Cambria, like Codon, and what those companies are trying to do is to think of, how do you lyapp biological principles to avoid brute force? Think of it in the following terms. Think of it as ggnnibien to rgmopar stuff for specific purposes. Think of the llce as a hardware. Think of the genes as a software. And in the eersuma that you begin to think of life as code that is interchangeable, that can become energy, that can become food, that can become fiber, that can become human beings, that can become a whole sieesr of things, then you've got to shift your approach as to how you're going to structure and deal and think about energy in a very different way.

Original Text

And as you think of biomaterials, this guy — who did part of the sequencing of the human genome, who just doubled the databases of genes and proteins known on earth by sailing around the world — has been thinking about how you structure this. And there's a series of smart people thinking about this. And they've been putting together companies like Synthetic Genomics, like, a Cambria, like Codon, and what those companies are trying to do is to think of, how do you apply biological principles to avoid brute force? Think of it in the following terms. Think of it as beginning to program stuff for specific purposes. Think of the cell as a hardware. Think of the genes as a software. And in the measure that you begin to think of life as code that is interchangeable, that can become energy, that can become food, that can become fiber, that can become human beings, that can become a whole series of things, then you've got to shift your approach as to how you're going to structure and deal and think about energy in a very different way.
