TED Talk: Richard Resnick on Genomic Advancement

Genome work is coming at us rapidly and it won't be stopped.

In this accessible talk from TEDxBoston, Richard Resnick shows how cheap and fast genome sequencing is about to turn health care (and insurance, and politics) upside down.

At 7:00-7:30 minutes Richard Resnick shifts from talking about curing human disease to plant genomics and feeding the world, saying that it will only be possible by utilizing genomic tools and that he feels morally obligated to utilize them.
