DNADNA Nanobots Used Bacteria’s Chemical Communication and This Enables Intelligent Nanobot Swarms

Bio-inspired Quorum Sensing in robots fabricated from DNA origami can communicate by transmitting and receiving diffusing chemical signals. The mechanism has features such as programmable response thresholds and quorum quenching, and is capable of being triggered by proximity of a …

computersFast and Compact DNA Logic Circuits

DNA is a reliable biomolecule with which to build molecular computation systems. DNA logic circuits (diffusion-based) have shown good performance regarding scalability and correctness of computation. However, previous architectures of DNA logic circuits have two limitations. 1. The speed of …

DNAFirst Billion-atom Biomolecular Simulation

Researchers at Los Alamos National Laboratory have created the largest simulation to date of an entire gene of DNA, a feat that required one billion atoms to model and will help researchers to better understand and develop cures for diseases …

crisprBetter Gene Editing than CRISPR

George Church describes going beyond cutting DNA to precise editing. 1. Phage Integrases (Protein and DNA) 2. TAL Deaminases (custom Protein) 3. Chemical Targeting (custom polymer) 4. lambda (λ)-red recombinase (Custom DNA) Beyond editing to writing large genomes DNA-based target …

aging reversalDelivery of 45 Age Reversing Gene Therapies at Once is Under Peer Review

George Church revealed progress on aging reversal using gene therapies. They have delivered 45 gene therapies to provide aging reversal. They find the combined treatment is effective against obesity, diabetes, osteoarthritis, cardiac damage and kidney disease. At 32:00-33:30 minutes George …

DNAWoolly Mammoths would prevent the permafrost from melting and help save the planet

The goal of woolly mammoth project is to solve the permafrost climate issue. The top area of the world is covered in permafrost. The Siberian and Canadian tundra is this mass of permafrost and that permafrost is a ticking time …

agingGeorge Church talks about reversing human aging and claims they made mice live twice as long

George Church is developing better and better organs using pigs. They are working to slow or reverse the aging in the organs to be used for transplant. He says the organ longvity has also been done successfully with entire …
