Eric Lander on “Biology as Information”

A two-day symposium “Computation and the Transformation of Practically Everything” was held on April 11-12 in celebration of the 150th anniversary of MIT (April 10 2011).  There were more than two dozen phenomenal talks (plus one by UW CSE’s Ed Lazowska).  The most phenomenal, though, was given by Eric Lander – Professor of Biology at MIT, Professor of Systems Biology at the Harvard Medical School, Founding Director of The Broad Institute at MIT, and Co-Chair of the President’s Council of Advisors on Science and Technology.

Listen to Eric’s talk – “Biology as Information.”  It will be the best 20 minutes you’ve spent this month.
