Synthetic biologists have added high-precision analog-to-digital signal processing to the genetic circuitry of living cells. The research, described online today in the journal Science, dramatically expands the chemical, physical and environmental cues engineers can use to prompt programmed responses from engineered organisms.
Synthetic biologists add tunable, analog-to-digital converter to their toolkit.
Lydia Kavraki, the Noah Harding Professor of Computer Science, professor of bioengineering, electrical and computer engineering, and mechanical engineering at Rice University, has been elected as a Corresponding Member of the Academy of Athens, the premier scientific society in Greece and the world’s oldest a
The jawbone is not typically connected to the rib bone, but it might be in an emergency.
Bioscientists are moving closer to 3D-printed artificial tissues to help heal bone and cartilage typically damaged in sports-related injuries to knees, ankles and elbows.
