Synthetic cells use DNA computers to communicate and compute data.

DNA computing is a form of synthetic biology using DNA and biotechnical hardware on the nano-scale to store data and compute information. As the makeup of all organisms on earth is based on a DNA coding system encoding masses of information, DNA is an excellent candidate for data processing on the nano-scale.  It is hoped these bio nano-processors will someday lead to ‘intelligent drugs’ with … Continue reading Synthetic cells use DNA computers to communicate and compute data.
