CELETERRA vs. Celera

Friend asked whether the name CELETERRA relates to, or is inspired by Celera... hmm - short answer is: no. Some of you may recall Celera Inc., the company that sequenced Craig Venter's genome. I recall dancing with him in Miami in 2001 (as did ~500 other biologists ;-). The human genome project and Celera definitely have affected humanity’s view of the world (and evolution more specifically), but there is no direct relationship with the book's title... Although: the mind works in mysterious ways.
