Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Researchers at Stanford University have developed a basic computer using genetic material, according to a report in the journal Science. The team said that the tiny biological transistors they have developed could potentially revolutionize medicine in the future. "We're going to be able to put computers into any living cell you want," lead author Drew Endy explained to the San Jose Mercury News. "We're not going to replace the...

Scientists at The Scripps Research Institute in California and the Technion—Israel Institute of Technology have developed a “biological computer” made entirely from biomolecules that is capable of deciphering images encrypted on DNA chips. Although DNA has been used for encryption in the past, this is the first experimental demonstration of a molecular cryptosystem of images based on DNA computing. Instead of using traditional computer hardware, a group led by Professor...

A team of scientists has determined a way to make biomolecular computers think more "Ëœlogically'. Professor Ehud Shapiro of the Weizmann Institute's Biological Chemistry, and Computer Science and Applied Mathematics Departments led the first team to create an autonomous programmable DNA computing device in 2001. The first microscopic computing device was able to perform tasks such as checking a list of 0s and 1s to show whether or not there was an even number of 1s. In 2004, a new...

Biomolecular computers, made of DNA and other biological molecules, only exist today in a few specialized labs, remote from the regular computer user. Nonetheless, Tom Ran and Shai Kaplan, research students in the lab of Prof. Ehud Shapiro of the Weizmann Institute's Biological Chemistry, and Computer Science and Applied Mathematics Departments have found a way to make these microscopic computing devices "Ëœuser friendly,' even while performing complex computations and answering...
