We may have heard about it before and must have had a million ideas about hows its going to work out. Most of us also blogged about it to Hsiens recent post on biocomputers and my earlier posts about DNA computer for Diagnostics and Digital data storing on bacteria were on the subject of scientists are looking at nature and adapting those ideals in technology
USC computer science professor Dr. Leonard Adleman, who made headlines in 1994 by demonstrating that DNA — the spiraling molecule that holds life’s genetic code — could be used to carry out computations.
now Physicist Graemme Brown of GBR Research has developed a computer chip made from DNA molecules – the building blocks of life – that can store and execute computer programmes.
The DNA tablet can be swallowed or inserted into the body and used to track down genetic defects and some illnesses. Massey University professors from Albany have been able to recreate the process in the lab and verify the findings.
