Computer Made from Bio–Molecules

Friday, November 09, 2012


Scientists from the Technion–Israel Institute of Technology and Scripps Research Institute have developed the world’s first ever computer based on bio–molecules that can decipher images encrypted on DNA chips.

The team’s research showed that applying suitable software to the bio computer enabled it to separately decrypt fluorescent images of Scripps Research Institute and Technion logo. This was the first experimental demonstration of a molecular cryptosystem of images that is based on DNA computing. The bio computer is basically a machine in which all the four components are molecules, which logically communicate with one another.

The input of the machine is a molecule that undergoes specific determined changes to follow a specific set of rules whereas the output of the chemical computation procedure is another well–defined molecule. The computer is built by combining chemical components in a tube solution that includes several DNA molecules and ATP (Adenosine triphosphate), which is used as an energy source for the device.

The most wonderful and precious element of universe is the human life which can only be guided by the right knowledge and right attitude. So, here is an ocean of knowledge, both in English and Hindi encompassing every detail and each facet of human life which ‘one must know’ in order to grow and attain the summits of success. A team of around 200 dedicated members is working ceaselessly to turn such a colossal dream into reality. We are confident that this portal will help bring change in people across the world.
