Scientists create digital bacteria to forge advances in biomedical research

... appendages that cells use for propulsion, and the motors to drive them. Emonet and his associates have designed their digital bacterial system in modules, so that additional components may be added later. "Right now it's a very simple model," Emonet said. "Basically the only thing those cells have is a s...

Nano machine switches between biological and silicon worlds

...The team's switch works with a number of DNA-based motors and can achieve incredible performance. Specific sensors, which emit electrons, can tell if the biological motor is working, so the switch links the biological world with the silicon world of electronic signals. Here's how it works. The team uses a...
