INTERACT WITH THE EXPERTS AT GF2045

Introducing Dr. George Church

Genomics Pioneer. Molecular geneticist, pioneer in personal genomics and synthetic biology.

Bionanotech for extending Moore's Law, the BRAIN project I/O & human genome engineering

We have developed a variety of CRISPR devices—protein-RNA-DNA complexes— enabling human genome—and epigenome—engineering with 20-fold higher efficiency and >100-fold easier programming than previous methods. To test these devices, PersonalGenomes.org provides the world's only biobank of human cell lines consented for fully open access sharing — and already outfitted as a sophisticated human synthetic biology chassis. We have designed and tested the first nanorobots made from hybrid materials—DNA, proteins and inorganic—which have sensors, logic & actuators capable of distinguishing subtle differences among various cancer, normal and immune cell types. We are exploring the use of similar hybrid nanostructures for manufacture of ultra-fast and complex electronic, optical and quantum computing and have demonstrated bionano storage a billion times more compact and with lower copying energy than conventional digital media. Such nanodevices offer significant advances in our ability to perform highly parallel input and output in animal and human neural systems.

BIOGRAPHY

1984 Harvard PhD introduced first methods for direct genome sequencing, molecular multiplexing & barcoding. These lead in 1994 to the first commercial genome sequence of the Helicobacter pylori pathogen.

His innovations in next generation genome sequencing and synthesis & cell/tissue engineering resulted in 12 companies in medical genomics (Knome, KnomeAlacris, 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.
