I've long been a supporter of the SMGF, headed by Dr. Scott Woodward, so I was delighted to trip across this profile of Scott:
I frequently find myself trying to explain to audiences what the SMGF project is all about, so this was the portion that really caught my eye:
Woodward's goals are ambitious. When asked what he wanted to have accomplished in 10 years, he said, "I don't know what I want to do in 10 years, but in one year I want to be able to sit down with anyone in the world, show them on a map to whom they are related, their common ancestors, the common genetic makeup of them and their ancestors and how the traits they have today were passed on to them."
"In one year." Hmmm . . . wonder what's coming down the pike!?
