Living Cell Circuits Could Regrow Organs and Produce Biofuels

It’s no secret that computer circuits can process enormous amounts of information — entire industries are built around this core function of technology.  In a series of experiments, the UW team built the largest organic “circuit board” constructed to date, including seven logic gates assembled in series or parallel.

The new research is a significant step forward for synthetic biology, said senior author and UW electrical engineering professor Eric Klavins.
