Biology is the muse, claims nanotech investor

Abstract:
What is it about Moore’s Law that makes biologists drool? According to one investor in biotech, Moore’s Law drives down the costs of reading and writing genetic codes. "The synthetic genetics people can write 100 million letters of genetic codes every 24 hours because of the ever-increasing power of computers," said Steve Jurvetson, managing director of investment firm Draper Fisher Jurvetson.
