A man is collecting DNA samples for a price to determine a person's lifespan.
When J. Craig Venter successfully mapped the human genome some 17 years ago, it was partly due to impatience.
Venter found the government-funded Human Genome Project to be too slow moving, so he launched his own genomic effort. He was able to fully sequence human DNA two years ahead of what was planned. Subsequently, Venter was the first person to have his complete DNA sequenced.
For a man like Venter, this was all just the first step. Now, he’s involved with a project that focuses on the other end of a human’s life.
Venter is trying to cheat death.
