Biological computers becoming a reality... albeit slowly

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Scientific American reports on efforts to create computers that use DNA sequences for logic circuits. Interesting to say the least.

Nanotech systems based on DNA may be on the verge of becoming very large and complex, if not immediately useful to medicine or manufacturing. Researchers have combined simple strands of DNA into the most elaborate logic circuits yet, with potential for even more growth, the creators say. Another group has turned DNA chains into a rudimentary robotic system, namely a grid containing dozens of flipperlike arms.

i'm quite quite conservative and in full support of Canada's mission in afghanistan but imagine if humanity poured its resources in to things like this instead of war. same with space travel, i'm sure we could be so far along if we didn't spend so much time, effort and money on things that don't advance us in any way.
