These lead in 1994 to the first commercial genome sequence of the Helicobacter pylori pathogen http://GF2045.com/speakers.
His innovations in next generation genome sequencing and synthesis & cell/tissue engineering resulted in 12 companies in medical genomics (Knome, Alacris, AbVitro, GoodStart, Pathogenica), synthetic biology (LS9, Joule, Gen9, Warp Drive) as well asnew privacy, biosafety & biosecurity policies. Director of the NIH Center for Excellence in Genomic Science.
Honors include election to NAS & NAE and Franklin Laureate for Achievement in Science. Currently Harvard Medical School Genetics Prof. Also provides the world's only open-access information on human Genomic, Environmental & Trait (GET) data through PersonalGenomes.org as its director.
