Members of Department for Biotechnology, National institute of Chemistry in cooperation with EN-FIST Centre of Excellence and Faculty of Computer and Information Science, University of Ljubljana, have developed cell computer. They constructed logical circuits in mammal cells that mimic electronic computer. This demonstrates the potential of designable modular transcription factors for the construction of complex biological information-processing devices. The achievement was published in Nature Chemical Biology.
