Distinguished professors Clyde Hutchison and Nobel Laureate Ham Smith head the J. Craig Venter Institute’s synthetic biology team.   ■ Clyde Hutchison: “Our focus is on building a cell with a minimal genome — only the genes that are absolutely necessary to have a living cell.”   ■ Ham Smith: “We want to know that set of genes that you absolutely have to have for a cell to be living. We can build up from that.”
