  • Quotes

“If you look at how our planet is set up, right? We've got air that's 20% oxygen and then we've got water, which is mostly oxygen. I don't think it was just happenstance that the environment which we live in is what we need to survive.” - Ryan Riley & Craig Randall

“I love the concept that we need to always continue to focus on understanding the science, understanding the surroundings, understanding where we are in this great big, huge world and how it applies.” - Ryan Riley & Craig Randall

“I've had thousands and thousands, thousands of failures, so I can either, um, continue trying what I'm trying, I can let somebody else try or I can try a new approach. And so that new approach was actually what, what essentially helped him to isolate this gene.” - Tim Griswold
