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.
