Top Biotechnology Quotes

Biotechnology Quotes By Darion D'Anjou

Escape is very difficult to negotiate, underwater. — Darion D'Anjou

Biotechnology Quotes By Nadia Abu El Haj

A Machine to Make a Future is an insightful and creative contribution to the literature
both scholarly and journalistic
on contemporary genomics. By 'experimenting' with narrative genre, the authors hope to generate different insights into the world of genomics and biotechnology than ones generally presented in existing accounts. They succeed at that goal, providing an account that is ethnographically rich and analytically open to a world whose structure, implications, and outcomes are very much in the making. — Nadia Abu El Haj

Biotechnology Quotes By Gregory Benford

Enzymes - plainly the most important biotechnology of our era - already permeate many industrial processes. Unlike fossil fuels, they carry chemical programming which drives complex reactions, are renewable, and work at ordinary pressures and temperatures. — Gregory Benford

Biotechnology Quotes By Lois McMaster Bujold

I'm very interested in the impact of biotechnology on the way people live. — Lois McMaster Bujold

Biotechnology Quotes By Mo Mowlam

Rest assured, the government is ready to support and enhance the competitiveness of the biotechnology industry. — Mo Mowlam

Biotechnology Quotes By Paul Davies

A permanent base on Mars would have a number of advantages beyond being a bonanza for planetary science and geology. If, as some evidence suggests, exotic micro-organisms have arisen independently of terrestrial life, studying them could revolutionise biology, medicine and biotechnology. — Paul Davies

Biotechnology Quotes By Leon Kass

Almost everybody is enthusiastic about the promise of biotechnology to cure disease and to relieve suffering. — Leon Kass

Biotechnology Quotes By Ignacio Chapela

US academic institutions are being bought via funding by biotechnology firms which exert a vice-like grip on the US government. — Ignacio Chapela

Biotechnology Quotes By Michio Kaku

By 2100, our destiny is to become like the gods we once worshipped and feared. But our tools will not be magic wands and potions but the science of computers, nanotechnology, artificial intelligence, biotechnology, and most of all, the quantum theory. — Michio Kaku

Biotechnology Quotes By Stewart Brand

Climate change. Urbanization. Biotechnology. Those three narratives, still taking shape, are developing a long arc likely to dominate this century. — Stewart Brand

Biotechnology Quotes By Clayton Christensen

In most instances, biotechnology, though a radically different approach, is a sustaining technology: It's a dramatically improved way of targeting problems that we hadn't been able to solve with the conventional approach of mainstream pharmaceutical companies. — Clayton Christensen

Biotechnology Quotes By Jayson Lusk

Peter Singer put it when discussing the use of biotechnology in food, "It is a mistake to place any moral value on what is natural. I mean many things are natural, including racism, sexism, war, and all sorts of diseases that we try to fight all the time. So the argument about [genetically engineered] food being unnatural and therefore wrong oversimplifies this debate."14 — Jayson Lusk

Biotechnology Quotes By Dietmar Hopp

The biotechnology wave is similar to the information technology wave of the 1980s and 1990s. — Dietmar Hopp

Biotechnology Quotes By Leonard Horowitz

Even to this day, the government, the FDA is refusing to use the sophisticated biotechnology to evaluate the contaminants in the vaccines such as the polio vaccines that they are administering. I think (people) would be appalled that some of the vaccines that are currently being used are still laced with viruses. — Leonard Horowitz

Biotechnology Quotes By David Suzuki

How do commercial interests usually protect themselves from liability claims? Through insurance. In fact, in our society, the litmus test for safety is insurance. You can be insured for almost anything if you pay enough for the premium, but if the insurance industry isn't willing to bet its money on the safety of [biotechnology], it means the risks are simply too high or too uncertain for them to take the gamble. — David Suzuki

Biotechnology Quotes By Seth Klarman

The risk of an investment is described by both the probability and the potential amount of loss. The risk of an investment-the probability of an adverse outcome-is partly inherent in its very nature. A dollar spent on biotechnology research is a riskier investment than a dollar used to purchase utility equipment. The former has both a greater probability of loss and a greater percentage of the investment at stake. — Seth Klarman

Biotechnology Quotes By Joe Lieberman

The way we're really going to grow the economy is to invest in people, to invest in innovation, to have the federal government put money in the kind of research that will create the new high-technology, biotechnology industries that will create the millions of new jobs. — Joe Lieberman

Biotechnology Quotes By Lynn Dickey

Skills training and industry-preparedness are the distinct advantages these students have. At the completion of their degree they have been trained to be biotechnology professionals. — Lynn Dickey

Biotechnology Quotes By Michael Smith

In 1986, I was asked by the then-Dean of Science at the University of British Columbia, Dr. R.C. Miller, Jr., to establish a new interdisciplinary institute, the Biotechnology Laboratory. I decided that it was time for me to start paying back for the thirty years of fun that I had been able to have in research. — Michael Smith

Biotechnology Quotes By Klaus Schwab

We must address, individually and collectively, moral and ethical issues raised by cutting-edge research in artificial intelligence and biotechnology, which will enable significant life extension, designer babies, and memory extraction. — Klaus Schwab

Biotechnology Quotes By Ralph Nader

It is a disturbing sign of the times when the two most transformative science technologies affecting the globe - biotechnology and nanotechnology - are governed by no external ethical or legal frameworks to protect public safety and other public interests, despite the fact that both industries have benefited from heavy taxpayer-funded government support. — Ralph Nader

Biotechnology Quotes By Jack Kornfield

No amount of outer technology, no amount of computers and biotechnology and nanotechnology is going to stop the continuation of warfare and racism and environmental destruction. What's called for on the Earth at this time is really a change of heart ... the question is really not the future of humanity, but the presence of eternity. — Jack Kornfield

Biotechnology Quotes By Ramez Naam

I'm a computer scientist by training. I'm also the author of three books, all of which endorse the use of biotechnology to improve the human condition. In the most recent of these, 'The Infinite Resource,' I talk about the power of innovation to save the world. — Ramez Naam

Biotechnology Quotes By Alex Berenson

If only the human body could handle trauma as well as biotechnology stocks do. — Alex Berenson

Biotechnology Quotes By Michael Sandel

What intrigued me most was not the technology as such but the questions about the human goods, the fundamental human values and virtues that are raised by debates over biotechnology. — Michael Sandel

Biotechnology Quotes By Chellis Glendinning

A whole new series of technologies like biotechnology, virtual reality, and super-computerization are appearing now that are leading us away from our nature-based roots. — Chellis Glendinning

Biotechnology Quotes By Nick Bostrom

Such an AI might also be able to produce a detailed blueprint for how to bootstrap from existing technology (such as biotechnology and protein engineering) to the constructor capabilities needed for high-throughput atomically precise manufacturing that would allow inexpensive fabrication of a much wider range of nanomechanical structures. — Nick Bostrom

Biotechnology Quotes By Peter H. Diamandis

Blue Heron Biotechnology, — Peter H. Diamandis

Biotechnology Quotes By Clayton Christensen

There are other dimensions of biotechnology. If you think of biotechnology like the Internet, it's not a category - it's an infrastructure that can be deployed to sustain or disrupt. In health care, the most complex problems at the high end have to be dealt with in a problem-solving mode by the best, most experienced physicians you can find. — Clayton Christensen

Biotechnology Quotes By Yuval Noah Harari

However, once technology enables us to re-engineer human minds, Homo sapiens will disappear, human history will come to an end and a completely new kind of process will begin, which people like you and me cannot comprehend. Many scholars try to predict how the world will look in the year 2100 or 2200. This is a waste of time. Any worthwhile prediction must take into account the ability to re-engineer human minds, and this is impossible. There are many wise answers to the question, 'What would people with minds like ours do with biotechnology?' Yet there are no good answers to the question, 'What would beings with a different kind of mind do with biotechnology?' All we can say is that people similar to us are likely to use biotechnology to re-engineer their own minds, and our present-day minds cannot grasp what might happen next. — Yuval Noah Harari

Biotechnology Quotes By Fareed Zakaria

In 2010, foreign students received more than 50 percent of all Ph.D.'s awarded in every subject in the United States. In the sciences, that figure is closer to 75 percent. Half of all Silicon Valley start-ups have one founder who is an immigrant or first-generation American. America's potential new burst of productivity, its edge in nanotechnology, biotechnology, its ability to invent the future - all rest on its immigration policies. — Fareed Zakaria

Biotechnology Quotes By Adam Schlesinger

I had a job transcribing a biotechnology-litigation seminar. You put headphones on and fast-forward and stop with your feet. There were a lot of 'um's.' — Adam Schlesinger

Biotechnology Quotes By William J. Clinton

I want American Dream growth - lots of new businesses, well-paying jobs, and American leadership in new industries, like clean energy and biotechnology. — William J. Clinton

Biotechnology Quotes By Ray Kurzweil

We cannot rely on trial-and-error approaches to deal with existential risks ... We need to vastly increase our investment in developing specific defensive technologies ... We are at the critical stage today for biotechnology, and we will reach the stage where we need to directly implement defensive technologies for nanotechnology during the late teen years of this century ... A self-replicating pathogen, whether biological or nanotechnology based, could destroy our civilization in a matter of days or weeks. — Ray Kurzweil

Biotechnology Quotes By Freeman Dyson

I see a bright future for the biotechnology industry when it follows the path of the computer industry, the path that von Neumann failed to foresee, becoming small and domesticated rather than big and centralized. — Freeman Dyson

Biotechnology Quotes By Larry Ellison

If I were 21 years old, I would go into biotechnology or genetic engineering. — Larry Ellison

Biotechnology Quotes By Bill Gates

America and Japan are the two leading world economies in terms of technology and innovative products. And in software, information-age technology and biotechnology the U.S. has an amazing lead. — Bill Gates

Biotechnology Quotes By Jon Huntsman Jr.

My sense is that we're ready for another industrial revolution in this country. The great minds and innovators of Silicon Valley would come through China and say, The pipeline is full of ideas - there's personalized medicine, biotechnology, new forms to power ourselves, clean energy, etc., etc. — Jon Huntsman Jr.

Biotechnology Quotes By Kiran Mazumdar-Shaw

If you think about brewing, it is biotechnology. And I would say that I was a technologist at heart. So whether I ... fermented beer or whether I fermented enzymes, the base technology was the same. — Kiran Mazumdar-Shaw

Biotechnology Quotes By K. Lee Lerner

There is unspeakable yet entirely preventable suffering in this world. The job of journalists and writers engaged with global issues is to articulate the unspeakable and give voice to solutions.
K. Lee Lerner — K. Lee Lerner

Biotechnology Quotes By Ray Kurzweil

We have the means right now to live long enough to live forever. Existing knowledge can be aggressively applied to dramatically slow down aging processes so we can still be in vital health when the more radical life extending therapies from biotechnology and nanotechnology become available. But most baby boomers won't make it because they are unaware of the accelerating aging process in their bodies and the opportunity to intervene. — Ray Kurzweil

Biotechnology Quotes By Freeman Dyson

The nuclear arms race is over, but the ethical problems raised by nonmilitary technology remain. The ethical problems arise from three "new ages" flooding over human society like tsunamis. First is the Information Age, already arrived and here to stay, driven by computers and digital memory. Second is the Biotechnology Age, due to arrive in full force early in the next century, driven by DNA sequencing and genetic engineering. Third is the Neurotechnology Age, likely to arrive later in the next century, driven by neural sensors and exposing the inner workings of human emotion and personality to manipulation. — Freeman Dyson

Biotechnology Quotes By Yuval Noah Harari

Homo Sapiens Loses Control Can humans go on running the world and giving it meaning? How do biotechnology and artificial intelligence threaten humanism? Who might inherit humankind, and what new religion might replace humanism? — Yuval Noah Harari
