Turning cells into computers with protein logic gates

New artificial proteins have been created to function as molecular logic gates. Like their electronic counterparts in computers, these biochemical tools can be used to program the behavior of complex systems, such as gene regulation inside human T-cells. This new advance might improve the durability of future cell-based therapies. The …

CREATURES FOUND DEEP BENEATH THE SEA GIVE HOPE FOR LIFE ON MARS

I am now almost over-expecting that I can find life on Mars,’ says scientist Scientists have found “dense” communities of creatures living deep beneath the sea, in a discovery that gives hope that similar life could be found on Mars. Volcanic rock more than 100 metres underneath the sea floor was discovered to …
