> HotWired will be hosting writer Charles Platt on Thursday, January 9th
> at 1:00PM PST on Talk.Com (our Java-based chat system at
> http://www.talk.com) to talk about the power of the Human Genome
> Project.  There'll also be a page describing the chat in greater detail

> Soon after the year 2000, the Human Genome Project, a massive research
> endeavor coordinated by the National Institute of Health, will have
> transcribed the code to the creation of human life. And at that time the
> code will be freely available to anyone. Talk with author Charles Platt
> about the implications of the Human Genome, which he covered for this
> month's Wired magazine. "We may someday see companies calmly and coldly
> manipulating genetic data in order to market new life-forms," says
> Platt, "from customized pets to infomorphs."
