DNA May Bring Life to Future Computers

The microchip of life might enliven computers and electronic devices of the future, say researchers at Purdue University. Albena Ivanisevic, an assistant professor of biomedical engineering, and Dorjderem Nyamjav, a physics graduate student, have devised a way to place strands of DNA on a silicon chip in precise configurations and then to stretch out the strands for easier reading of their encoded information.
