Bio-computer combines DNA memory and cellular logic gates

MIT scientists have created genetic circuits in bacterial cells that not only perform logic functions, but also remember the results, which are encoded in the cell’s DNA and passed on for dozens of generations. The circuits, described in aNature Biotechnology paper, could be used as long-term environmental sensors, control mechanisms for biomanufacturing, or to program […]
