"From the Ted Talk by Riccardo Sabatini: How to read the genome and build a human being"

Unscramble the Blue Letters

But since we are onstage, Chris challenged me. I probably epsxeod myself and tried to pcdiert someone that you might rceiognze. So, in this vial of blood — and believe me, you have no idea what we had to do to have this blood now, here — in this vial of blood is the amount of biological information that we need to do a full genome sequence. We just need this anuomt. We ran this sequence, and I'm going to do it with you. And we start to layer up all the understanding we have. In the vial of bolod, we pdceiterd he's a male. And the subject is a male. We predict that he's a meter and 76 cm. The subject is a meter and 77 cm. So, we predicted that he's 76; the subject is 82. We predict his age, 38. The sebcjut is 35. We predict his eye color. Too dark. We predict his skin color. We are almost there. That's his face.

Original Text

But since we are onstage, Chris challenged me. I probably exposed myself and tried to predict someone that you might recognize. So, in this vial of blood — and believe me, you have no idea what we had to do to have this blood now, here — in this vial of blood is the amount of biological information that we need to do a full genome sequence. We just need this amount. We ran this sequence, and I'm going to do it with you. And we start to layer up all the understanding we have. In the vial of blood, we predicted he's a male. And the subject is a male. We predict that he's a meter and 76 cm. The subject is a meter and 77 cm. So, we predicted that he's 76; the subject is 82. We predict his age, 38. The subject is 35. We predict his eye color. Too dark. We predict his skin color. We are almost there. That's his face.
