Professor Daniel Rokhsar showed the science that Dr. Brenner inspired, and is still inspiring, at OIST. OIST researchers have sequenced the genomes of many animals and plants, including coral, mozuku, umi budo and others that are important to Okinawa. “Toward the end Sydney was fond of saying that he would like to be able to come back in 2053, the 100th anniversary of the discovery of the double helix, to see how far we’ve come.  So our mission is clear: to attack science in the way that he taught us and to make discoveries that will delight him upon his return.”
