Every once in a while a revolutionary product comes along that changes everything. You are very fortunate, if you can work at least on one of these products during your career. There have been several major breakthroughs in medicine. Biological computers are the next revolutionary product that will change the way medicine is practiced. What are biological computers? In traditional silicon-based computers, the work is done by chips and circuit boards. In biological computing, the machinery of life replaces the chips and circuit boards of traditional computing. Biological computers apply the recent discoveries from the field of Synthetic Biology. Synthetic Biology (engineering with biological parts) is becoming the defining science of the 21st century. Recent scientific developments in Synthetic Biology make the dream of biological computing a reality. The possibilities are mind blowing and will revolutionize the way we will do personalized medicine.
