a study from scientists at the Incheon National University engineers a programmable DNA-based microfluidic chip that can be controlled by a simple smart phone to perform DNA calculations.

DNA computing successfully minimalized to chips.

Biocomputing is a highly sustainable burgeoning area where biological materials are used to perform computational functions. These materials are environmentally friendly, cheap, and maybe capable of providing mass storage for millions of years. A natural choice for biological computing materials, information-encoded deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) strands provide a parallel computing process via the cascading chain reactions amongst its nitrogen base pairs. DNA is a molecule composed …
