UW Engineers Borrow From Electronics to Build Largest Circuits to Date in Living Eukaryotic Cells

FANCYNORGATE.jpg

UW synthetic biology researchers have demonstrated a new method for digital information processing in living cells, analogous to the logic gates used in electric circuits. In a key step in the ability to program living cells, the team built the largest circuits published to date in eukaryotic cells, using DNA instead of silicon and solder.

Printed, Flexible and Rechargeable Battery Can Power Wearable Sensors

20170327-stretchable_batt-03057-1-ok.jpg

Nanoengineers at the University of California San Diego have developed the first printed battery that is flexible, stretchable and rechargeable. The zinc batteries could be used to power everything from wearable sensors to solar cells and other kinds of electronics. The work appears in the April 19, 2017 issue of Advanced Energy Materials.
