The public won the race, Craig Venter

Interviewee: Craig Venter. Craig Venter talks about the public won the race.

I think the public won the race, you know. There are now discoveries that have taken place in this last year, new steps for treating new diseases, that wouldn\'t take place for a decade. And when you think of how things exponentially build off of one discovery or another, you know, ten years from now we will be so much further along in science than anybody could ever imagine because this data\'s now available.
