Artificial protein builds autonomous circuits to control any cellular process.

UC San Francisco develops an artificial protein capable of building autonomous circuits to control any cellular process.

Bio-computers are systems comprised of biologically derived molecules, such as DNA and proteins. Accordingly, these synthetic biologics are used to build circuitry inside cells which can perform computational calculations involving storing, retrieving, and processing data. In turn, it is hoped these ‘smart cells’ will lead to smart drugs; living computers inside the body that are able to monitor, target, and
