DNA-Based Processors Are The Future?

“Researchers at Duke University recently used DNA to craft tiny chips used in computers and electronic circuits.

By mixing DNA snippets with other molecules and exposing them to light, researchers created self-assembling, DNA-based logic circuits.

Once perfected the tech could serve as an endlessly abundant, cheap alternative to silicon semiconductors.

Chris Dwyer, lead researcher on the project, says that one grad student using DNA to make self-assembling circuits could produce more logic circuits in one day than the global silicon chip industry can create in an entire month!”

    Very interesting. In a similar manner pharma labs are replicating gnese within bacteria to be used for drugs that can be mass produced n a much cheaper manner. We are always interested in the latest DNA news.
