Programmable Biology

Nature offers tantalizing examples of the magical properties of biology—self-assembly, self-repair, self-replication, and more. But perhaps the most astonishing feature of biology is that it runs on digital code in the form of DNA, which makes it possible for them to imagine building such living machines.

The code is made up of A’s, T’s, C’s, and G’s, and they can read and write it to program cells like we program computers.
