Synthetic Biology : Programming Living Cells

April 29th, 2005 | Filed under: Biology, Biotech, Future, Technology | No Comments »

Ron Weiss, and his colleagues at Princeton University have managed to program living cells by engineering the plasmid section of DNA which is read by the cell as a set of instructions to produce protein under certain conditions. Early experiments show E. coli bacteria programmed to emit red or green fluorescent light and self configuration into simple shapes (image 1, 2, 3).
