"Digital code, as you know, is a binary code, and ones and zeroes, and your genetic code is literally four-base code with ACGs and Ts. We can now readily convert in between the two, and we can define life at its most basic level."

— J. Craig Venter, Author, "Life at the Speed of Light: From the Double Helix to the Dawn of Digital Life"
