Biocomputers Hold Promise For Drug Delivery, California Institute of Technology Study



10/17/2008 7:53:42 AM

Technology Review -- Scientists in California have created molecular computers that are able to self-assemble out of strips of RNA within living cells. Eventually, such computers could be programmed to manipulate biological functions within the cell, executing different tasks under different conditions. One application could be smart drug delivery systems, says Christina Smolke, who carried out the research with Maung Nyan Win and whose results are published in the latest issue of Science.
