CRISPR Base Editing Gives Live Cell Computation an Upgrade

06:00 EDT 23 Aug 2019 | Genetic Engineering News

Using a modular CRISPR base editing system called DOMINO, scientists at MIT have engineered living cells to be computing and recording devices. DOMINO can execute cascades of DNA writing events in response to biological signals, enabling the deep interrogation of biology and allowing engineered cells to process, monitor, and store information occurring within cells and/or their environments.
