This is a recent Power Point presentation given to describe the evolution and content of the Environmental Genome Initiative. Similar presentations are underway to groups with direct interest in the mapping of the Environmental Genome.
Awarded the 2017 Innovation in Smart Chemistry sponsored by Nike, NASA, U.S. Department of State, Estee Lauder, American Chemical Society Green Chemistry Institute, and U.S. Agency for International Development.
To map the Genomic Web of Chemicals and Materials as a joint, respectful effort of product manufacturers for our global society’s needs and organizations for public health. The open-source map will yield large, unforeseen health and economic benefits as we have learned from the evolution for mapping the human genome. To also actively participate in emerging applications of the resulting informational database for a variety of joint initiatives involving other organizations.
The project leads the exploration of the environmental genome and is envisioned as a joint, respectful effort of product manufacturers for our global society’s needs, public health organizations, and the philanthropic community.
The goal is to create an open-source database and map of origin and development, in both time and place, of molecular building processes for the approximately 100,000 chemicals and materials used commercially to build every nearly product in current use by global society.
